EMBA Program offers new China Lab option
The EMBA Program at MIT continues to expand and enhance its action learning options to
provide EMBA students with more choice and diversity in their final semester.
Global Labs at MIT have been very successful in giving students a wide array of opportunities in their team learning experience. This year, the program is beginning earlier to identify host organizations and craft projects for the upcoming class. Global Labs options will include the classic GO-Lab, IDEA Lab, and a new option in China Lab.
A four-month intensive team engagement, China Lab involves partnering with an organization in China to address a critical management challenge. Tasked with a specific project that caters to a participating host company's needs, each student team works across cultures and time zones from January through April to put traditional classroom learning into real-world practice while examining critical business issues and promoting economic growth. The course aims to provide students with insights regarding the issues and challenges in the Chinese economy and business through lectures and project-based learning.
SAINT LOUIS UNIVERSITY
EMBA students complete global immersion alternative
With COVID-19 resulting in the cancellation of study abroad programs throughout the world, Saint Louis University explored an alternative for second-year students.
Students must complete the global immersion course to receive their diplomas, so the program quickly started looking for alternatives and options. The program’s partners at Austral Ltd. offered a great solution: a module that includes several company presentations and a consulting project for senior students. It will take place in early June for several consecutive days and for a very reasonable cost. While it cannot replace on-the-ground student bonding and learning experiences, it will satisfy the requirement, students will learn about business in Latin America, and they will receive their diplomas in August.
EMBA Program relaunch is planned for fall
In fall 2020, the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) Russia plans to relaunch a new Executive MBA Program with a few major developments that reflect its evolution and contemporary market needs.
The two-year Executive MBA Program of SSE Russia first debuted in 2000. Since then, the program graduated 38 EMBA groups in English and Russian.
SSE Russia bases its business model of education on communication with both a group of like-minded people and European experts. It emphasizes diversity of life and the professional experience of students, faculty, and staff.
The Executive MBA GM Program consists of 13 modules, each lasting four to six days per month, over 20 months. The new edition of the program focuses more content on the global megatrends that affect policy makers in all sectors, including digitalization, globalization, and sustainable development. Program participants will learn the basics of doing business in Russia, Stockholm, Luleå, the second largest contributor to Sweden's GDP after Stockholm, and Tel Aviv.
The new EMBA Program will emphasize even more discussions in the classroom, challenging participants to critically assess each other’s arguments as they go through business cases from around the world. Coaching in the program will help participants better understand what motivates them, their behavior in teams, and what major blind spots they may have. It also includes a joint module on cross-cultural management that brings together EMBA participants from the Stockholm School of Economics family of programs in Stockholm, Riga, and St. Petersburg. And it combines entrepreneurship and creativity with social responsibility through modules where students develop fresh ideas with design thinking and tackle field projects where they can create real change in their organizations.
