Our teaching methodology emphasizes cross-disciplinary integration and the balance of theory and practices through interdisciplinary projects and real-world applications. Students will gain the ability to combine various disciplines and skills and to leverage their previous work experience as well as the diverse expertise of academic researchers and active practitioners in the MBA faculty.
This experiential learning approach characterizes the entire curriculum that gives ample space to applications, real-world examples, and case studies. This approach culminates in the final program components, the Corporate Consulting Projects or the Individual Business Project, and the Business Simulation.
Corporate Consulting Projects are an essential component for the MBA and constitute the capstone of the program. With these projects, the MBA offers students the opportunity to work on concrete, real-world projects, sourced by companies, and to be actively involved in strategic decision-making and recommendations to specific corporate opportunities, challenges, and issues.
