In an increasingly uncertain business environment, the task of managing has become more complex and demanding. The key to business survival in the future lies in developing leaders who can effectively respond to the rapidly unfolding challenges of tomorrow. The LUMS Executive MBA (EMBA), offered by the Suleman Dawood School of Business has been designed precisely to cater to this need.
The Executive MBA programme is designed for mid-career managers and entrepreneurs who are keen to take on greater challenges and make an impact on the productivity of their organisations. These individuals can leverage their rich work experience through a world-class management education programme in the form of the LUMS Executive MBA.
The weekend programme has been structured to enable busy managers to acquire management education while fulfilling regular professional responsibilities.
The courses in EMBA have been carefully selected to provide both depth and breadth of a rigorous, world class management programme. While starting with the fundamentals of each functional area, the courses quickly step up to advanced levels in order to maximise learning of a group of highly experienced managers. This helps participants develop an understanding at the operational and strategic levels in each business area.
As a student, the Executive MBA participant experiences different perspectives from the entire Executive MBA class comprising of individuals from diverse backgrounds. They get the opportunity to interact with each other and discuss solutions to complex case situations in the presence of instructors that have international exposure. Lively peer interaction is an integral part of the learning process and the LUMS SDSB classroom provides a rich climate for discussion.
Once a participant gets to familiarise with the entire class and the professors in the SOP, the programme translates into an enjoyable journey. The experience derived from an Executive MBA class gives you the confidence and the leadership qualities to tackle even the worst case scenarios amicably. Lectures, videos and computer exercises complement the classroom experience. Strong personal ties and associations are developed across different industries that serve as a dependable mentor base for lifetime.
The Executive MBA Programme is designed for mid-career managers and entrepreneurs who are devoted to taking on greater challenges and making a better impact on the productivity of their organization. These individuals can leverage their rich work experience through a world-class management education.
