You will study how to manage and lead teams, contemporary principles of management and standards of critical reasoning and problem-solving. You will be a communicator, with the skills to operate effectively in the international business community, with cross-cultural sensitivity and awareness.

You'll be exposed to a number of real-world projects that allow you to learn from business leaders in some of the world's fastest growing economies, and the current market situations and practices being used in global business operations.
