Program Structure

The best of both worlds: face to face and virtual collaboration

The EuroMBA program is a truly international program for internationally oriented managers and professionals, designed and realized by a consortium of six European universities and business schools of outstanding caliber.

The program fits the needs of the current executive to combine theoretical and practical training and work, allowing them to study from home, yet to work with executives from around the world. Since its inception in 1996, flexibility, high quality theoretical and practical training, innovative work processes and international networks have been the keywords of the EuroMBA program.

By offering 10 e-learning courses in combination with six residential weeks in five different European countries, managers earn their MBA in a truly international context. These strengths are combined with a strong focus on European business and management, an international teaching and management staff, as well as participants from at least 25 different countries.

Introduction Seminar

At the start of the EuroMBA program, all new students attend the introduction seminar from Friday afternoon until Monday afternoon. This introduction seminar takes place twice a year, during the intakes in September and January.
The seminar allows participants to:

1. Get to know their fellow students
2. Get their group consultancy project off to a good start
3. Get to know the EuroMBA staff and the EuroMBA program and procedures.
4. Acquire skills needed to perform well in the EuroMBA program:

  •  Writing and presentation skills
  • Teamwork and intercultural communication
  • Virtual learning environment Lotus Notes 
  • Teambuilding activities 
  • Kick off session for the online courses

Residential Weeks

The residential weeks provide managers with the opportunity to put down their textbooks and to apply their knowledge and experience. There are six compulsory face-to-face residential weeks, spread out over the two year program. Each week covers contemporary themes in management, as well as providing training on a range of leadership skills. Participants will receive lectures from experts and professionals on hot issues in business, work on group projects and receive management skills training.

Each partner provides one residential week on a contemporary theme in management. The themes provide a general focus for the week and highlight issues that managers need to consider in today’s dynamic business environment:
•    Corporate Social Responsibility
•    Organizational Learning and Transformational Change
•    Managing Emerging Markets
•    Entrepreneurship
•    Managing Strategic Innovation
•    Business Life Cycle

As a complement to the residential week themes, we also provide training in the residential weeks on a number of soft skills, such as
•    International Negotiation
•    Influencing / interaction skills
•    Problem Solving in teams
•    Decision Making
•    Coaching skills
•    Emotional intelligence

E-learning Courses

Between the residential weeks, participants follow 10 e-learning courses that focus on the basic tools of management, such as
•    Strategic Management
•    Change Management
•    International Management
•    Management Accounting
•    Corporate Finance
•    Human Resource Management
•    Technology and Innovation Management
•    International Marketing
•    Managerial Economics
•    Operations and Supply Chain Management

For all e-learning courses there is always a tutor online available for questions and to follow and moderate the discussion of participants on the platform.
