Seasoned Participants Enrich the Learning Experience

Although AVT requires a minimum of five years of business experience, the average CBA participant has close to 20 years of work history and a median age of 40. This makes the AVT CBA classes among the most experienced executive classes in Denmark today.

Cost-Effective Education

The cost of the CBA (149,800 DKK, ex. VAT) is about one-third of the cost of a full MBA. Read more here to learn how sharing the cost of a CBA with your employer may be surprisingly affordable – for both of you.

A Multifaceted Curriculum

The CBA program is based on tools and services supplied by Harvard Business School Publishing. It also utilizes the renowned Case Learning Method pioneered by Harvard Business School.

With this highly interactive approach, genuine case studies are combined with online resources, practice activities, checklists, self-assessments, and expert feedback to provide an engaging and impactful learning experience. Our elite instructors integrate the proven Case Learning Method with stimulating lectures to create optimal opportunities for learning.

The CBA program also includes an enjoyable, eye-opening study tour to Cambridge in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Designed to Fit Your Organization – and Your Career

The CBA curriculum covers all of the major MBA topics, from strategy to operations management. As a participant, you integrate your learning with real issues that your own organization currently faces. This provides you with valuable insights and strategies that can be implemented immediately on the job.

With the AVT CBA program, you match your new skills with the natural progression of your career. This “mini-MBA” allows you to work confidently in a cross-functional, general management setting while providing a stepping stone to the MBA if you desire to deepen your education.
