Profound, On-Going Shift in Global Competition
With the rapid rise of emerging mega-markets and the increasingly integrated global economy, global competition today is undergoing a profound shift.
Change Leadership for Global Competitive Advantage
It is clear that simply observing and responding to the shift is not suffi cient. Instead, corporations must proactively initiate change to create competitive advantage over their rivals. Such initiatives are of cross-functional integrative nature as disconnected functional moves can hardly lead to competitive advantage. Thus, today’s global competition necessitates a critical pool of global managers who can work across boundaries of business functions and mobilize their business as an integrated whole.

Interaction with Exchange Students

Summer Capstone Courses
Capstone courses represent final, wrap-up courses for the IMBA program. Taken in the summer months prior to graduation, they integrate elements from multiple courses already completed to address timely managerial issues and challenges of competitive importance. Capstone courses are typically one-credit courses and topics may vary from year to year, refl ecting emerging issues of global competition.
