Overview

Business today is international; therefore, organizations have stakeholders around the world. Also, more countries are evolving into market economies, and business now operates in a world that is both turbulent and complex. We are committed to develop leaders capable of making business decisions in a complex global environment and who are dedicated to serve their companies, society, and humanity. We will help the business leaders of the coming decades deal creatively with a diverse workforce, a global marketplace, and a business environment characterized by rapid change.

Program Characteristics

Our program is developed upon innovative learning methodologies, constant improvement, cultivation of practical skills and an unwavering commitment to academic quality.

We have created a curriculum, which is enriching and challenging by its diversity, where students learn to relate and function in new ways. We want our students to understand in terms of whole systems and organisms rather than of fragments. Students are encouraged to acquire a holistic approach which, when coupled with inner merit, will transform them into leaders with vision, a deep sense of ethics and social responsibility.
