Learning Standards

The MBA program is application oriented. While learning the theory, through widely used case studies and simulations, students study how to put what they have learned into practice. Each class hosts executive guest speakers for students to learn from their experience.
The small group size of the program leads to more interactive learning. Students are always working on teams and the teams are changed four times throughout the program so the students will have the experience of working with a variety of backgrounds.
During the network weeks, company visits are arranged and top executives are visited.
