We recently launched a new 100% online MBA and other novelties are in the pipeline. Apart from that it’s our ongoing ambition to turn our knowledge into action, making it highly relevant for the business community. Finally, with our programmes, we create a true impact on our participants and their companies, preparing them for transformation and equipped to challenge themselves, the status quo and the changing world around us.”
