OBJECTIVES

The Master in Business Administration (MBA) is aimed at experienced managers who want to combine further training with their professional and personal life. Students are highly diverse in terms of their geographic origin, culture, and academic and professional background, and have very different expectations and interests.

The program fulfills students’ need to gain a more comprehensive overview of the company and further develop the necessary skills to lead their teams in a complex, changing global environment and take part in strategic decision-making. It also enables students to customize the program based on their professional/personal interests by allowing them to design an ad hoc track to cover the training requirements of leaders in functional areas, current and future professional sectors and new areas of knowledge that arise in the current changing global environment in which companies operate.

The MBA program is designed for executives and senior managers in any functional area and managing directors who want to update their knowledge of management and management skills, and their business outlook by adapting to the changes demanded by society and the market.

Our goal is for managers taking this master to become strategists, architects of their organization and leaders who can get the most out of each member of the teams of professionals they are responsible for.
