DESCRIPTION

In its two decades-long history, the ALBA MBA has always been a groundbreaking innovator, helping early to mid-career professionals take off their career to upper-level management or create their own ventures. At ALBA MBA the major question that drives are thoughts and actions is how can business leaders create financial and social value in an ever-increasingly paradoxical global environment.

Entrepreneurial creativity, enabled by technical competency and leadership skills, is at the core of the ALBA MBA.

Unparalleled management curriculum and pedagogy
