Introduction to the Global Online MBA


The modern, flexible curriculum of the Global Online MBA

What to expect

The Global Online MBA is one of its kind in the European market. It is designed so you can continue working full-time while gaining the knowledge and competencies to support your personal and professional development.

The program has a unique and innovative curriculum structure that groups together courses to give you complementary - but distinct - perspectives on key business issues. For example, the three courses in Module 1 will help you make wiser decisions under uncertainty. You will learn how to apply quantitative techniques to decision making, how to address organizational issues that can prevent effective decision making, and how to evaluate the implications of managerial decision making.

The combination of an integrated approach with online-first design enables us to plan every moment of your learning journey. The result is that over the course of the Global Online MBA program you will learn everything that a modern decision-maker needs to be a successful leader.

Course materials, including mini-lectures and interactive activities, are built into all modules to allow studying at your own pace. The interactive sessions, assignments, and projects are available any time on the Hub to fit into your schedule. All courses contain a mixture of group and independent study, and assessment will take place throughout each module through a series of assignments and projects. Expect to devote 15 hours per week to your studies during each module.  

The fully online study program is delivered on the world's most innovative virtual learning platform by ESMT's world class faculty.  And our membership in the Future of Management Education (FOME) alliance guarantees your access to the world’s most innovative online learning environment.
