NEWSLETTER November 2014


Dear Readers,

In order to succeed in today’s business world, just having good ideas is no longer enough. For innovation to happen, people need to think out of the box, roll up their sleeves and get things done. The new special workshop, Dirty Innovation, shows managers how this works by literally getting their hands dirty.

In the current Financial Times (FT) Executive MBA ranking, our Global Executive MBA is again listed among the world’s Top 100 MBA programs. Read our ranking analysis and learn more about why Asian universities have dominated the FT ranking in recent years, making it increasingly difficult for business schools from other regions in the world to compete with them.

Happy reading!
