Course content

The ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA gives you a tangible competitive advantage, as you not only gain necessary business knowledge, but share experience and knowledge with peers and experts, learn to identify changes and generate innovation, and refine your people-management and leadership skills.

Become a Leader

A good leader takes a step back and considers the bigger picture, the birds-eye view. However, a good leader is also a motivator, someone who recognizes the importance of his or her team and empowers them to achieve their goals. Although leadership might sometimes appear to be innate or instinctive, it can be learned - and enabling you to enhance your leadership skills is one of the key objectives of the ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA.

Be a Team Player

Teamwork plays a crucial part, making up about 70 % of the work involved in the program. Thus, you will observe first-hand the synergies of a team-oriented working style and gain further intercultural experience. Working in diverse ‘multi-competence teams’ will encourage you to reflect on your leadership style and creates a space where you can try out new and different approaches. Naturally, a team of professional coaches will be on hand, and both individual and team coaching sessions are part of the program.

Know your Business

You will begin the program with core knowledge modules that form the backbone of general management, such as organizational behavior and financial accounting. As the program progresses, lectures will become more environment- and policy- oriented, focusing on topics such as financial or marketing policy or international strategy. Finally, you will be discussing issues arriving from and dealing with organizational change, for example change management, leadership and ethics.

Build a Network

Program elements running over the whole program period, such as conferences with global business experts, the social class project and the comprehensive entrepreneurial project, will further advance your personal development, as you will reflect on the social and ecological responsibilities of business leaders. They also turn the ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA program into a truly unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience through which you will forge a lasting network of potential business partners and friends.
