Advanced Master of Business Administration
The Advanced MBA is a degree program for Advanced Management schools who aspire to become global leaders for business and society.
The Advanced MBA program gathers the most promising management students from around the world to exchange ideas and points of view that complement the knowledge and skills they learned in their home countries as MBA students.
Across all sectors, today’s global leaders must be outstanding managers. They must understand how competition works, how organizations function, and what makes leaders effective. They must have a firm grasp on major global risks and trends, thrive in cross-cultural environments, and know how to make meaningful connections across knowledge domains to craft innovative, entrepreneurial solutions to vexing problems. The Advanced MBA curriculum is built to enable students to nimbly meet these challenges of global leadership.
As an Advanced MBA student, you will participate in a required series of courses and discussions oriented around major trends in global business and the role of business leaders in today's society. You will also have the opportunity to curate your own intellectual journey at GSC.
