Class sizes are small, so designed to enhance the interaction of students and faculty, as well as student to student collaboration. Learning methods include use of case studies, simulations and experiences with various companies drawn from a wide range of industries.
The first year at the University is designed to form a firm foundation for future leaders in the business sector. Courses covered at this stage include managerial economics, ethics, communication, financial accounting, organizational skills, strategic planning and implementation, marketing, finance, and data analysis, among others.
It is during the second year that MBA students specialize in courses that align with their career choices. At this stage, students are also allowed to elect ALP (Action Learning Project), a consultative, team-based, thirteen-week program.
During the Alp program, students work in groups to solve actual business problems presented by external clients. They are expected to recommend detailed solutions to the problems.
