Learning Model

EMMIO combines a hands-on approach with a solid theoretical component, anchored around management frameworks and tools tailored to the operational and institutional specificities of international organizations.
Different and complementary learning methodologies will be adopted, to generate the participants’ highest active learning involvement.
Lectures in class will be introducing key concepts, methodologies and techniques. Case study and business case discussions, exercises, simulations, role playing will be at the core of the teaching and learning methodologies of all class activities. The learning experience is built upon a process including three phases: learn the target knowledge, experiment it and apply to company context.
Active learning is supported by a comprehensive executive coaching component which runs throughout the EMMIO program.

An all-round view of International Organizations

EMMIO merges practice and theory, using management frameworks and tools that are fully tailored to the operational and institutional specificities of international organizations.

The EMMIO learning path revolves around three main blocks of modules:

  • Envisaging and innovating: modules in this section scrutinize the complex and dynamic environment within which international organizations operate; explore the main frameworks and tools for strategic thinking and planning; tackle the building blocks of organizational design, institutional governance and change management and foster participants’ ability to drive and assess successful and sustainable innovation;
  • Managing and Leading:modules in this section enable participants to effectively perform in multicultural environments typical of large, decentralized international organizations. Contents also focus on managing ethically, result based management, public procurement and impact investing;
  • Managing resources and operations: modules in this section take participants through the core management functional subjects, ranging from budgeting and financial management to risk management, from resource mobilization and branding to business process improvement and operations.
