IMBA Learning Goals
The IMBA program follows the same overall philosophy as MBA program, but is of a shorter duration on account of the participants being experienced managers, and because of it, necessarily with fewer required credits. Three out of four learning goals of the IMBA program overlap with those of the MBA program. The IMBA program particularly emphasizes transforming students to general managers and thus allowing them to function effectively in a senior position.
