An emphasis on teamwork and study groups are an essential part of the Executive MBA experience to prepare our students for future career prospects. A mix of techniques, focused strongly on the case study methodology, allows students to work in interdisciplinary groups and, in turn, discuss, debate and solve real-life business problems. A mix of additional methods is used to draw on the participants own professional experience, creating an interactive learning environment and promoting an exchange of ideas between students and faculty. What makes our program special is the action learning concept and its dual focus on personal and organizational development.
