Features - Chapman MBA program
The exceptional quality of the Chapman MBA program is based on three main factors:
1. Accreditation of the MBA program
The Chapman University MBA program has the most prestigious accreditation of AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business). It is just one of 593 schools of economics from approximately 8,000 schools of economics in the world which gained a similar accreditation. In the Czech Republic, only one other MBA program has this accreditation. The quality of the program is also reflected in the unprecedentedly fast accreditation obtained from the Czech Association of MBA Schools (CAMBAS), the accessing member of which AAVŠ is.
Sixty percent of the MBA program is taught directly by professors from Argyros School of Business and Economics at Chapman University. This school has renowned specialists with doctor degrees from Harvard, Princeton, Cornell, and other prestigious universities. The basic qualitative differentiation of the program is demonstrated by Dr. Vernon L. Smith, 2002 Nobel Laureate in Economics, who participates in the academic development of this school. Forty percent of the program is taught by professors from Anglo-American University with the highest scientific and pedagogic degrees and years of practice in the areas of finance and business.
We offer the whole program for the price of 430.000 CZK corresponding to approximately 50 % of the price of an identical program taught by the same specialists of Chapman University in the United States. A discount of such significance reflects the strategic interest of Chapman University as an extension of its operation in Europe.
