Step 3: Foundation & Core


A foundation program is the first step on the way to successfully obtaining your MBA degree. Our foundation courses have been specifically designed to provide you with the best possible preparation & the appropriate academic grounding for entry into a wide range of management areas.

Core courses highlight the professional challenges and responsibilities that you will face as a general manager and create a road map to navigate the twists and turns. The core curriculum is designed to give students an in-depth mastery of the academic disciplines and applied functional areas necessary to every business leader’s success. Looks at the big picture, you can see the interdependence between each of the functional areas of business, how they are all affected by the turbulent, competitive and international environmental context in which corporations operate, and how integration of functions helps in managerial problem-solving.

Taught by leading professors, the core leaves students with more than just practical knowledge; case-based lessons and collaborative learning models train students to analyze, decide, and lead rather than merely “know”. Discover how to make a difference and be yourself, with skills.
