As an experienced executive, you are probably managing projects, specific departments or functions, or teams in your organization. You know, and your senior management knows, that you have the potential to grow and take up General Management responsibilities. The occasional Executive Development programs and Management Development workshops may help you to sharpen some of the weapons in your armory, but what you need really is a comprehensive, well-structured program that will help you acquire the complete skill sets required to take up senior management responsibilities.
But circumstances may not permit you to take a couple of years off from your demanding career. And rather than settle for a â€˜one size fits allâ€™ compromise solution, you may be looking for a customized program that recognizes your years of management experience and integrates new concepts, applications, and trends with your understanding of business into a holistic process.
Most management education programs are overly depended on the lecture â€“ based method of learning. A case driven E-MBA is quite different and based on a series of case studies. Management is essentially about practice, not merely a set of academic theories. Case studies are developed around real-life situations, in a number of businesses across the globe. By analyzing the cases, you will learn key management concepts through their application in a business context. For example, through a case study on General Motors, you will get to know good deal about the company, about the auto industry, and about Global Economic conditions because General Motors operates in a number of countries across the world. The case study enables you to think and learn in a multi-dimensional manner under simulated conditions. A case study narrates an actual or realistic problem and requires participants to analyze the problem and take a decision regarding it.
You may be already working in a functional area like finance, HR, IT, operations, or administration. By going through a case driven management program, you will gain a holistic perspective of the business. You will develop inter-disciplinary and integrative skills which will help you in your career progression from a functional manger to a senior corporate manager.
There is a myth that it is not possible to do entire MBA program relying on just case method of learning. The answer is MBA program of Harvard Business School which is 100% case-driven. Students at Harvard are expected to go through at least 15 case studies every week.
