About This MBA Program

Course Description

The great advantage of the combination of working and studying is that allows participants to apply learned concepts and frameworks immediately in their daily jobs. Classes take place 2 weekends per month (Friday evening and Saturday). The duration of the Weekend-MBA is two years.
