Program description:

The MBA program focuses on a range of core business, management and leadership disciples, integrating courses to build your capacity for incisive analysis, innovation, and strategic leadership. It also allows participants a choice of specialisation in finance, strategy or entrepreneurship. Between September and February, students study nine foundation courses in major disciplines including strategic leadership, finance and economics, strategic marketing and operations improvement. Concurrently, students take part in our integrated Personal Development programme which provides in-class lectures, one-to-one coaching, and skill development coursework designed to help with your career strategy. Once these core modules are complete, you can then turn to your specific career interests through the selection of option courses from a wide range. The final step of your MBA is a Capstone project that allows for the focused study of a career-enhancing research project, internship, business plan, or consulting project. By combining our three pillars (Strategic Leadership, Professional Development, and Boutique Experience), our MBA guides you to become a more strategic thinker and more effective manager.
