Is the MBA Right for You?

The theme of the AVT Executive MBA is “Responsible Leadership in a Globalizing World”, which is inspired by the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI). Beyond the traditional MBA topics, the curriculum explores the issues of corporate social responsibility, ethics, cross-cultural management, and sustainable business.

In the Live Case phase, you and your fellow participants will examine the various challenges facing a large Danish company. Grundfos, acting as “live case” throughout the MBA program, supported the class of 2009. The Class of 2010 worked with Carlsberg Group; the Class of 2011 worked with LEGO. The MBA Class of 2012 worked with Maersk Line.
