The Ateneo-Regis MBA Program is a non-thesis program designed for senior managers and executives whose corporate responsibilities limit their time for pursuing graduate degrees and are thus compelled to complete the program as quickly as possible through accelerated methods.
Ateneo’s Graduate School of Business has long utilized a facilitated learning approach to workplace-based education, while Regis University has over time mastered the use of an accelerated mode of adult learning. Under a Program Development and License Agreement signed between the two institutions in 1997, a groundbreaking Ateneo-Regis MBA program was developed that used an accelerated facilitated learning mode to deliver a high-quality, high-impact executive MBA to workplace-based, experience-driven professionals who are prepared to take greater responsibility for their own learning and are ready and able to use their workplaces as their learning laboratory.
The Ateneo – Regis MBA Program will arm executives and business leaders of today with the theories, skills, value frameworks, and adaptive learning outlook that they will need in order to keep up with tomorrow’s dynamic and rapidly changing competitive environment.
