GLOBAL VISION, PERSONAL FOCUS
The intense programme blends core business fundamentals together with a choice of specialised tracks, tailored projects and international learning expeditions which will help you to develop your business and leadership mind-set for your future career.
Because of the shorter duration of the course, the Global MBA is especially suited to candidates who already have a strong professional base – on average, participants have 8 years of experience so the ROI can be particularly strong as you will be out of the work place for less than a year but will have all the learning and development you need to define and achieve your ambitions and next steps. You can also have the option to extend your experience through a 6-month internship on completion of your studies or chose to fast-track your experience.
Each course includes a combination of academic teaching, real-life case studies and group projects to give you practical and actionable learning outcomes from a both an inter-personal and professional perspective. The programme also includes 2 one-week international learning expeditions.
Build Your Strategic Foundations
During your first 6 months, you will gain 360◦ global business vision which allows you to understand and apply relevant strategic frameworks, ask the right questions and make informed, impactful decisions.
Personalise & Specialise
After building a solid foundation of the core fundamentals of business and leadership from September to February, your journey becomes a truly personalised experience from March through to the end of June.
