MBALive® brings the real world to the program and the program to the real world.

The SSE MBA Executive Format focuses on making research driven theoretical frameworks applicable to real managerial issues and solutions. The program brings hands-on action and real-world experiences to the classroom through cases, live projects, and the experiences of the participants. To get the most out of the process of using the models and implementing what you learn, we have developed a special pedagogy, MBALive®, which 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 frameworks from the courses to live management issues and cases in real companies. The MBALive® takes different forms corresponding to the learning philosophy of the program. It encourages you to think, do, and reflect in different ways.

You learn together with other participants, SSE faculty and case sponsors, and develop feasible recommendations for action and real change. All modules and most courses in the program use the MBALive® pedagogy, so you do not have to wait until after graduation to bring your newly acquired knowledge and skills into the real world.
