Best EMBA Degrees in Middle East 2017. Thank you for your interest in Sabancı Executive MBA. The Sabancı Executive MBA Program has been meticulously designed for preparing middle level-managers to become top managers who can compete globally. I would like to encourage you to look into our program carefully and decide whether it is the right program for you. We have a demanding program that requires a lot of hard work and effort. This effort includes not only attending classes and studying individually, but also supporting each other as part of a team-learning process. The program is designed to build upon the practical experience of the participants, creating an environment that allows sharing such experiences. These design characteristics of the curriculum and the program schedule are based on the values we espouse: academic excellence, strong work-ethics, teamwork, and practical relevance. While this web site provides an excellent overview of Sabancı Executive MBA, we encourage you to visit our campus, attend the information sessions and meet our students, staff and faculty members in order to understand the Sabancı Executive MBA experience. I am sure, upon seeing our excitement about our program, you will want to be a part of this rewarding program and make the right investment for your career. Why Sabancı Executive MBA? The design and the implementation of the Executive MBA take the part-time nature of the Program as an asset and consider participants’ engagement with the Executive MBA and their daily work responsibilities as complementary learning opportunities. Fundamentally, the Program aims to create an environment where formal input through readings and lectures are integrated with platforms in which participants can learn from their own practices and those of other fellow participants. Hence, there is a heavy emphasis on teamwork and students are expected to be active in class discussions and exercises. Most courses use case-studies to bring real-life issues in to the classroom, require students to apply their knowledge in novel situations, facilitate learning through team-work, and improve communication skills through presenting and supporting their analyses. Case-studies are selected from leading case publishers of the world, such as Harvard, Ivey and IMD, as well as some cases written by our own professors. The building of the Sabancı School of Management is equipped with state-of-the art facilities to serve degree programs as well as executive development activities. These include lecture halls, teamwork cubicles and residential facilities. All lecture halls are equipped with the latest audio-visual facilities and Internet connection. The Executive MBA participants also have access to a state-of-the-art Information Center, with its collections of books, multimedia, and periodicals as well as extensive database resources. Learning from Practitioners One of Sabancı University’s underlying tenets is to be “practice oriented” and no where is this principle taken more seriously than in the Sabancı School of Management. We have a number of programs in the Executive MBA program to allow participants to learn from successful executives. The Executive Insights series provides a forum where successful executives share their life and work experiences together with our students and alumni. These events are held mid-week, downtown and thus also provide a great venue for our alumni and current students to network. Executive-to-Executives conference series are held several times every term and they feature in depth presentations by visiting executives. Our goal is to invite not just successful executives to these sessions, but those whom we call reflective practitioners, managers who have taken time to reflect on their successes and failures, and have derived lessons from their experiences. Learning Outcomes Improving the Ability to Diagnose Global & Local Problems and Opportunities: Identify and diagnose business problems and opportunities accurately and effectively across a wide range of business domains (accounting, financial management, operations, marketing, strategy, and organizational design), in global and local contexts. Incorporate Cultural Context and Complexities in Their Managerial practice.
