It is designed to balance theory and practice, and analytical thinking and action, and is structured to ensure that participants gain leadership training through active participation, and a corporate executive perspective. It teaches participants to build foundational skills and confidence to expand their capacity to lead and face cross-functional challenges. UNIGE EMBA carefully selects the participant mix through a rigorous 4-step selection process to ensure a high quality peer-to-peer exchange. Its teaching staff is keenly aware of the need for managers and business leaders to develop and implement efficient operational solutions to complex situations. UNIGE EMBA is accredited by the Association of MBAs (AMBA). Students are led to develop their autonomy, intellectual capacity and practical skills, and acquire the necessary tools to achieve their professional goals. They also learn to use their analytical and strategic skills to develop new solutions to complex problems rather than simply adopting ready-made solutions. Faculty: The diverse origins and backgrounds of the faculty members and students guarantee an international perspective and cross-discipline input.

New Block Format: In order to satisfy the demands of the international population, UNIGE EMBA now also offers block format courses in addition to the traditional bi-weekly program starting September 2016. This new format includes the same course offer as the bi-weekly program, but in a concentrated schedule. This block format is ideal for international participants from far horizons (i.e., Middle East, Eastern Europe, Asia, etc.). PROGRAM STRUCTURE The full EMBA program cycle (both the bi-weekly and block formats) includes 24 modules and an In-company MBA project, and lasts 2 years. 12 Core courses including Self-Leadership make up the the 1st year curriculum.

Upon successful completion of both years, including the In-company MBA project, graduating students receive the Master of Business Administration Degree. 100% participation is expected to validate the modules; each course comprises 24 class hours. For each class hour, students should count an additional 1 to 2 hours for reading, preparation, case study and evaluation. 1) Bi-weekly format (traditional): twice a month, on Friday afternoons (2pm-9pm), and Saturday mornings (8am-1pm); some courses are organized over 3 consecutive full days; to be completed over 2 years 2) Block format (concentrated model): 6 blocks of 3 modules (8.30am-5.30pm) with 6 online courses; to be completed over 2 years.

Each program module is subject to an assessment. EMBA assessments include final exams, presentations, and/or project reports, and may be conducted individually or in groups. As part of the assessment requirement, students carry out a group project (3-4 students per group) in their area of specialization, which could be implemented in their businesses. These projects are conducted in close collaboration with the sponsoring company, which is usually the student’s workplace. Students act as consultants and their findings and recommendations should be applied by the sponsoring organization.

Modern learning approach We provide an optimal mixture between teaching of theoretical frameworks, case studies, guest speakers, company visits, business simulations and practical projects and assignments. On top of that, our courses are entirely ran on iPad. This means that no more paper and binders need to be carried along. Digital delivery of course materials enables participants to carry all their course materials with them to have them available when they need them. Finally the iPad delivery also enables extra and richer interactivity, both in class and afterwards. Combination of learning and working The MBA-FSI covers a period of 22 months (including graduation), in which two-week residential modules of classes, group work, etc. are followed by self-study periods during which assignments (e.g. literature, case-preparation, thesis, etc.) have to be completed while you continue working. In this way, the theory learned is applied immediately into your own working environment. Programme Approach During the programme, general management knowledge and skills are combined with in-depth insights into the business economics of the financial sector. In order to achieve this goal, each module is structured on the basis of two perspectives. Academic Perspective The academic perspective offers participants the necessary frameworks and tools to tackle the challenges of a modern organisation. In each module participants acquire a firm understanding of relevant management skills in different domains, including strategic management, marketing, human resources and organizational behaviour, accounting and finance, operations and technology, corporate governance, risk management and other issues. Business Perspective Secondly, the MBA-FSI provides participants with insights into the financial services industry. The focus is on the different sub-sectors of the financial services sector: banking, insurance and investment. We discuss the main trends taking place in the different industries and translate the academic and theoretical frameworks to the financial services industry. Taking these two perspectives into account, this programme provides high potentials with the necessary training to pursue a successful career in today’s fast changing financial services sector. Curriculum During the six residential modules of the programme, participants acquire a firm understanding of the most recent developments in the different management disciplines. At the same time, participants learn to apply the management frameworks to their own financial institution. It’s this application of general concepts to the financial services industry that sets the MBA-FSI apart from general MBA programmes.
