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.
Block 1 - The Role of Business in a Complex World
Introducing basic foundations of business by courses such as Managerial Control and Finance. The position of business in its Supply Chain, in the Economy and in Society at large will ensure that a broader view on the role of business in the world is developed. An international module in collaboration with a partner school will enhance this broader view by understanding the challenges of businesses in emerging markets. The integration module on “Doing Business in a Complex World” concludes the first block. In this module, participants will be challenged to integrate their knowledge when analyzing business opportunities and future scenarios at the business, sector, country, and cross-country level.
Block 2 - Positioning for Long Term Sustainable Value
You will develop more advanced business knowledge to understand both the internal challenges faced by organizations and the positioning in their competitive environment. The combination of these insights enables firms to develop new business models to ensure future success. This block is concluded by the Integration Module on entrepreneurship. Equipped with their knowledge of this block, participants are challenged to develop new business ideas and develop these ideas into potential new ventures.
Block 3 - Making It Happen / Change for Impact
