Prepare for the future with EMBA

The emergence of the Internet, new technologies and internationalisation have disrupted business models and we have witnessed the rise and fall of industry giants. It has also led to modern leaders requiring a new and broader set of skills to perform their jobs.

Business has simply become more digital, more global and more sustainable. An international and forward-looking mindset, as well as the ability to lead people effectively through change and technological innovation are highly sought-after leadership traits. As a leader, how prepared are you for these challenges?

 Who is Executive MBA for?

This programme is for ambitious professionals who seek to develop as a leader and succeed with ambitious career plans. One of the most valuable assets of the Executive MBA programme is the knowledge and insight of its participants, who bring tremendous value to both colleagues and customers.

"An Executive MBA at BI is more than a degree; it's a network, a confidence builder, and a personal development journey, fostering long-term career success."

Bringing real life business to the classroom

The curriculum is almost exclusively based on case studies, exposing you to a broad set of real life business problems. The knowledge of lecturers and the experience of participants combine to make for a wealth of practical ideas to bring back to your company throughout the programme. The intense schedule encourages insightful discussions, both within and outside of the classroom. Additionally, it opens up the opportunity for a richly diverse international network.

Rewarding group work

One of the most valuable assets of the programme is the diversity of participants' backgrounds. Thus, group-based projects make for an important part of the assignments. You will work in groups of 4-6 students of diverse backgrounds - each with different strengths. Multicultural teams create forums for you to develop your international network and strengthen your cooperation skills. We change groups several times during the programme. After each group work we conduct a peer feedback as part of the self-development process. Between modules, group members can work together through our virtual campus. Participants find their study group crucial for both support and knowledge development throughout the programme.
