Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an MBA and a specialising master?

The MBA is a general management master program allowing you to gain a whole picture of business by deepening at the same time the latest trends such as Industry 4.0, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Circular Economy. 

Do I need working experience to access this MBA?

Yes, you need at least three years of full time working experience.

Why should I choose a Full Time MBA rather than a Part Time MBA?

If you are looking for a radical career change, the Full Time MBA, with a dedicated Career Development Office, will best meet your expectations. The Part Time MBA allows you to combine your studies with your work, and grow professionally.

Can I combine work and studies?

No, this is a full time master with compulsory attendance and final three-month in-company project.

What does the selection process entail?

You will have to sit a motivational interview and a MIP Test (as an alternative to the GMAT test) and complete your application pack with all the admissions requirements.
