Program delivery

The program will transform your strategic and operational capabilities while giving you the practical tools, creative insights and hands-on experience you need to accelerate your journey toward senior leadership.

18 months of transformation

The program is built around ten residential modules. These take place at the Rotman School, at SDA Bocconi, and on the campuses of our international affiliate academic partners, providing in-depth local perspectives on global management. Each module consists of several courses, and includes lectures, team discussions, and other dynamic, real-time learning opportunities.

Global Executive MBA

Classroom time is interspersed with company visits, exchanges with top executives, networking events and guest speakers, allowing you to enrich and apply your local learning. Evenings are filled with group projects, individual assignments and time to explore the local culture and cities.

Online learning predominates in the periods between modules: preparation begins for the next set of courses, with study materials delivered a month or two before class begins. This is also the time to complete assignments and team deliverables, participate in review sessions and write exams.
