The combination of a methodological mix based on three axes is proposed: Training - Experiences - Professional development. Through this methodology, it is possible to facilitate and adapt learning to the needs of an increasingly demanding competitive environment that requires continuous learning and relearning.

How do the training sessions take place?

  • Face-to-face sessions. Fundamentally practical teaching, based on the professional experiences of the teachers and the acquisition of validated methodologies and work models.
  • Practical cases. Discussion and realization of practical cases, through which the students will work as a team and will be able to propose solutions applying the acquired knowledge.
  • Virtual campus. Virtual platform where students will find the necessary resources to solve practical cases. It is also a tool to facilitate group communication and is a meeting place to discuss, consult and propose topics of interest.
  • Online tutorials. Through the virtual platform, students will be able to answer questions and maintain contact with the faculty staff.
  • Technology. We will rely on different technology solutions that will allow participants to experiment with real tools, currently used by companies in their digital transformation processes.

How is experiential learning promoted?

  • Outdoor Training Activity carried out outside the classroom that aims to deepen the fundamental managerial competencies in organizations in contexts of uncertainty and complexity (leadership, teamwork, innovation, resilience, executive intelligence, communication, conflict resolution, etc.).
  • Inhouse cases. We will make real cases in companies in the area of different sectors (footwear, retail, luxury, logistics, industrial, services, toys, tourism, technology, etc.) and typologies (SMEs and multinationals) where in addition to visiting and knowing the facilities of each company, MBA participants will try to solve a real challenge of the company led by a manager of the same. Inhouse cases will be an excellent opportunity to test the knowledge and methodologies acquired in the MBA, as well as being an opportunity to develop networking with companies in the area.
  • International Experiences (Global MBA mode). If you opt for a Global MBA you can complement your studies with “International Experiences” with three modalities of Study Trips: Silicon Valley, Georgetown and China.

Methodology

This methodology requires a very well trained cloister in this technique, since the classes have to become authentic forums of shared knowledge.
