GLOBAL MBA STUDIES DESCRIPTION
The Global MBA studies programme is the best choice for those who dare to think, try, search, criticise and make decisions. The programme is based on three core values: inspiration, innovation, and implementation, which create the programme’s foundation.
Inspiration – diverse cohorts, and a faculty with a rich and wide cross-sector experience shared at every step of the programme.
Innovation – by applying innovative, active, and flexible teaching methods adopted to each cohort, we are able to create the space for innovations developed by our students.
Implementation – our curriculum is constructed in a way that provides students with the set of tools necessary to implement innovations developed during the course, and in their further careers.
The one-year-long, full-time Global MBA studies provide solid foundations in key
business disciplines, and reflects the complexity of management issues that arise in the
international and global context. The structure of the Global MBA programme is
designed to reflect the challenges of international and global business, and to
incorporate core competencies appropriate to the turbulent business environment.
It is also possible to combine the Global MBA with an MA in Management. The MA path takes an additional 12 months. To obtain an MA in Management, one needs to get credits for a specific set of courses.
