Distinctive Features

The MBA Standard Program is one of the flagship offerings of the Ateneo Graduate School of Business. The program is designed for young adult practitioners who wish to upgrade their knowledge and skills so that they can prepare themselves for eventual promotion to higher level management positions.

Over the past thirty years, the program has undergone continual improvements in its improvements in its pursuit of the school’s objectives. The program integrates the values of St. Ignatius, the traditions of Jesuit education, and the development of skills attuned to the challenges of the 21st century.

The curriculum is designed to equip the students with fundamental skills, to make them strategic thinkers, and to move them with the passion for excellence to become managers and leaders for others.

All courses in the program are conducted with the use of interactive methods appropriate for the workplace-based and experience-driven adult learner with the faculty assuming a facilitative and coaching role.

Thus, the students must come to class prepared to tackle the issues assigned for the particular session.
