Courses

The Full-time MBA Program is either a 15, 18, or 21-month program with a flexible curriculum that supports individual needs through dynamic learning methods.  A Pre-program orientation focuses on leadership and a self-development plan to be used as a guide throughout the educational experience.

Year one consists of core courses of the MBA focused around three themes:  Tools and techniques, managing the organization, and engaging with the business world.  Different methods of teaching and learning are applied to draw direct links to industry and commerce in these areas.

A summer internship, entrepreneurial classes, or participating in the summer consulting team must be completed before second semester.  Then, a series of electives and experiential learning techniques will govern the remainder of the second year.  Also, the Global Business Experience course offers students a chance to gain insight on the crucial area of business.

The Executive MBA Program is offered in London and Dubai.  It is a transformational experience that equips students with the skills, knowledge, and networks needed to further their professional career and personal lives.  The program helps to balance the demanding career and personal commitments each student has within a 20-month program of rigorous study and elaborate professional development.

There is also an EMBA-Global Program offered in America and Europe.  As an EMBA-Global student, you study beside global executives, learn from world-class faculty members from both schools (in New York and London), study in the two major business, finance, and cultural capitals in the world.  Students also become part of a network of over 73,000 alumni, a part of two internationally accepted brands, and receive an MBA degree from each school.

Sloan Masters in Leadership and Strategy (Sloan MSc) is an executive education program that empowers senior executives, professionals and entrepreneurs to become global leaders.  Students range from a diverse background of cultures and professional careers.

Sloan MSc is a full-time 12-month program that consists of five dimensions: Key knowledge; the core themes of strategy, leadership, change, and globalization; a tailored set of electives based on the student; global perspectives taught through international assignments and diversity; and key skills assessed through a core skills portfolio.  The programs main focus is to develop effective leadership abilities.  Topics covered to satisfy this goal are a leadership assessment, understanding top management, writing a biography, and managing people and organizations.
