Continue your career while you study thanks to a program schedule designed for working managers

The program schedule is once per month, Thursday-Sunday, (plus two 7-10 day residential modules) which has proven to be a manageable schedule even for those who spend 80% of their time travelling.

Executives in the program also appreciate the fact that the schedule takes some time from work and some time from home. This reflects their reality where demands from both can be high, and it has proven to be a good equilibrium.

The schedule of classes is available more than a year in advance, and at the start of the program the class is provided with the due dates for all assignments for the year. This visibility means that participants can plan ahead, and that’s often the key to making the program fit into a busy life.
