Business owners to C-suite executives can benefit from the ESSEC & Mannheim EMBA Asia-Pacific programme, which covers the latest managerial concepts and business trends to prepare participants for the future of business.
Professor Cedomir Nestorovic, the programme’s academic director, shares what you can expect from this international programme with a pan-Asian focus.
As the world learns to cope with the impact of Covid-19, employers might bet on the employability of their staff and the versatility they show when presented with unheard-of challenges rather than a fixed set of skills they gained long ago.
The EMBA offers up-to-date concepts and skills, helping participants to keep their current job or move to another industry or position.
The EMBA is designed for experienced working professionals — particularly C-suites, senior managers, or business owners who have accumulated significant working experience, averaging around 14 years.
The EMBA is also designed for those who want to upgrade their knowledge about the latest managerial concepts and techniques, and learn about the latest business trends in big data and digital transformation.
We are constantly updating the curriculum to cope with the newest challenges posed to organisations such as sustainability goals, responsible innovation, or ethical considerations.
ESSEC professors also teach company-specific programmes or act as consultants to companies so they are on the pulse with the latest industry trends, and deal with recent business challenges. This is especially so when it comes to the post-Covid-19 world, in terms of online operations, and the dichotomy between essential versus non-essential activities, products and services.
Our faculty and staff members are working concertedly towards a “dual-teaching” mode — both pedagogically and in terms of equipping classrooms with the appropriate facilities to support face-to-face and online teaching.
