MBALive® brings the real world to the program and the program to the real world.
The MBALive® pedagogy aims at developing an understanding of the complexity and dynamics of organizations. In this part of the program you integrate and apply theoretical management concepts and frameworks studied during the MBA courses to live management issues in real companies.
Through dealing with real life issues you raise your level of critical leadership competence by further developing your analytical skills and reflective capability. You learn together with other participants, SSE faculty and case company representatives through employing new perspectives and challenging assumptions. You develop feasible recommendations for action, drive real, measureable change, and reflect upon current developments.
The MBALive® takes different forms, corresponding to the learning philosophy of the program. It encourages you to think, do, watch and feel in different ways.
The ChangeLive project runs for an extended period. Participants work in pairs, either in their own organization or a fellow participant's to pursue strategic change within the sponsoring organization. The change should be of measurable value, constitute a real improvement in the organization and be a change that would otherwise have required extensive use of internal or external resources.
LeadershipLive represents and enhances the personal leadership development during the program through the acquisition of theoretical knowledge, analytical and practical skills, and the creation of an individual leadership inventory, including self-awareness, ambitions and challenges. The LeadershipLive stream builds on the four pedagogical pillars of the program and helps participants develop a holistic approach to leadership. Coaching and reflection are two central components of LeadershipLive.
Responsibility and Sustainable BusinessLive
Ethics, corporate responsibility and sustainable business are the most important leadership and business issues in our time. Understanding the challenges and opportunities, along with the tradeoffs and dilemmas, are an integral part of leading businesses and organizations and thus these perspectives are integrated throughout the program.
