We re-imagined an MBA curriculum. Designing the program, we interviewed CEOs who already compete globally about knowledge and mindset shifts necessary for success. As a result, our courses take MBA topics to a higher level of complexity and our faculty has direct experience in international business. Every course is supported by guest lecturers discussing practical matters of real-life global expansion. In addition, we offer a wide choice of electives for further personal and managerial development.
