Develop leadership skills and competencies through action.
Participants of the International MBA need a tangible way within a real business setting to acquire the competencies they need to complement their existing skill set. That's why they are required to undertake an Entrepreneurial Leadership Project (ELP).
Working on this 9-month project allows participants to immediately put the academic knowledge into practise, allowing them to continuously make the most of their learning experience. The outcome of the ELP might be implemented in the company.
"Undoubtfully, the most exciting experience during my MBA was ELP (Entrepreneurial Leadership Project). Dealing with a real company, solving an urgent business issue, applying theoretical skills to business practice, sharing my own work experience and learning from the team members – my ELP was extremely rich in all respects. Moreover, the findings of this project are fully applicable to my present job."
The ELP projects cover many areas of business expertise, whether it be finance, marketing, change management, or the start-up of new activities.
