Theme

MBAs are among the most important and challenging programmes for business schools. People participating in these courses have great expectations in terms of quality, but also about their career advancement. Furthermore rankings and the tough international competition requires a careful design and management, which goes beyond the pure teaching quality, involving a wide range of activities from the identification of target students to the alumni engagement.
In this context, MIP and EFMD propose a two-module course to help face these challenges, enhancing and exchanging knowledge about the management and coordination of MBA programmes.

Target
Managers and administrative staff in business schools and university who deal with MBA programmes (full time and executives) and who are interested in deepening key issues and confronting their experience with colleagues around Europe. The course will provide an opportunity to exchange ideas and set the basis for a constant networking.
