Participant profile

Our Executive MBA is an English-taught, all-round leadership program. You develop professional competencies and also strengthen your personal skills. You also take advantage of the Leadership Impact Program. The Leadership Impact Program runs parallel to our program of 15 modules and is important for your career development through workshops such as presentation skills, personal branding, negotiation skills, team coaching, career advice, personal coaching and network meetings.

You are no stranger to ambition. With plenty of talent and potential you will join a competitive group of like-minded peers. You will flourish in an interactive environment that encourages you to go beyond the traditional boundaries of leadership.

Our Executive MBA is subject to a number of admission requirements. In this way we provide you with an inspiring and highly qualified group of about 45 selected participants. The majority of participants have experience with varying professional backgrounds. The bulk is active in, but not limited to, general management roles, finance, consultancy and research & development. Ideally, you will already work in a role which requires you to have an organizational overview, strategic insight and assessment of decisional impact.

The program helps you to broaden your horizon

“I recommend the Executive MBA to others because it really helps you to look from multiple perspectives. The program helps you to broaden your horizon. You learn to look at yourself very critically and how you can improve yourself in the multi stakeholder force field you are working in. In the course you also look at the societal impact. You focus on long term solutions to solve a business problem by creating shared value for society.
By being a weekend away from home once a month, I could combine this program with my private life. My family and my job were therefore not comprised.”

Boy Sleddering, Business Manager

Content

Organizational environments are changing rapidly. Organizations need to operate fast and agile. Organizations are looking towards capable leaders, whose judgment is sound and who provide extraordinary  insights. Leaders who are capaple  of taking the interests of multiple stakeholders across multiple scenarios into consideration. Our Executive MBA encompasses academic, personal and societal development. Aligning your career ambitions with this broader awareness is the next step in becoming a rounded, responsible business leader.

The TIAS EMBA program is organized into three theme-based blocks of courses. Each block is concluded by an integration module, in which insights from previous courses are synthesized and applied to business challenges. We offer the program in a flexible way. You always start by following block 1. Afterwards you can take block 2 and 3 when it suits you, provided that you complete the program within 7 years.

International modules

Two international modules are fully integrated in the program to ensure you can experience views on business from different cultural viewpoints and gain a global perspective. These modules are offered in cooperation with business schools from our international network.

Emphasis on personal growth with the Leadership Impact Program

The Leadership Impact Program is part ofour Executive MBA and is set up to guide you in the development of your core competencies and letting you excel in your professional work after graduation.

Personal skills are developed by individual coaching, team coaching and a wide range of specific workshops. Together we identify your strengths, weaknesses and preferences and use them to outline a path to realize your full potential and give you new inspiration. 

Our pool of experienced coaches will ensure personal and group guidance.
