The MoT Executive MBA relies on three major factors that are crucial in today's business environment. There are two kinds of leaders who can truly change the business world: the Entrepreneurs (creating and developing a new enterprise) and the Intrapreneurs (creating and developing new activities within an existing enterprise). The MoT Executive MBA program is particularly designed for these profiles.
Innovation, whether derived from Hi-Tech or from Life Sciences, is a key driver to be competitive. To fully deploy innovation from a business perspective, it is necessary to combine Management and Technology together. The program addresses these key dimensions.
Finally, it recognizes that in a global world, the growing market with the largest potential is China. Consequently, the program also takes place in Peking and Shanghai and has established partnerships with top-ranked institutions, like the University of Peking, in order to enable participants to do business in China. From day one of the program, the learning process is particularly project-oriented to ensure that the various topics are immediately applicable in a global world.
