As an action oriented program, the OpenBordersMBA provides participants with multiple opportunities to share and benefit from each other’s expertise and work experience thanks to:
- The self-preparation based on professors’ and experts’ instruction (individual preparation, group work, readings, writing papers, presentations, personal coaching, case study analysis, etc.)
- The duo of professor and expert who lead their seminars and coach the participants before and during their seminar (problem-solving in groups, meetings with experts, experience sharing, team strategy presentations, conflict resolution role-play, computer-based business simulations, negotiations and debates, peer evaluation sessions, etc.)
- Your professional activity (working on company's projects, coaching for problem-solving, extending your company's network, assignments on different aspects of your company, sharing new skills and ideas with colleagues, etc.).
Teaching methods are based on reflective learning and experience sharing, constant challenges and alternation of diverse ways of active learning before and during the seminar session.
In order to provide an efficient knowledge transfer to the participant, the learning process is spread over 3 to 4 weeks, with the preparation phase (12-15 hours a week/ 48-60 hours a month) and the seminar weekend itself.
