Four-day courses over two weekends

EMBA courses require only two weekends to complete, making it possible to obtain an official, internationally certified EMBA in as little as one year. With the latest business cases utilised as course materials, practical learning is achieved through discussion from various management perspectives giving students real solutions that can be implemented the following Monday.

The EMBA curriculum is designed to help students acquire the ability to oversee the entire management process, which is necessary for executives and managers. In class, students build on their own answers to the issues raised in their preparatory studies, seeking solutions by incorporating the opinions of the faculty and others in group sessions and class discussions. Through these discussions, students are able to acquire management judgment skills rooted in a broad perspective and deep analytical skills. Students learn systematically from the basics to their application, culminating in their final project: an original case study coalescing the lessons learned throughout the program.
