Our Programs

All of our courses are intensive short term courses (generally 3 weeks in duration), and usually administered in January, July, August and September, to allow students the opportunity to travel to take our courses without disturbing regularly scheduled university studies or work. Our courses, with an integration of theory and practice, allow students to gain profound understanding of international business management and administration. Students have the opportunity to apply theory through case studies and guided corporate visits. We also invite guest lecturers and corporate executives to speak with our classes as part of the course curriculum.
