    The learning platform of the Global Executive MBA aims to make full use of each participant's time by combining traditional lectures, case studies, group projects and business simulations with a variety of distance-learning sessions.

    What are the evaluation criteria?

    In each module, participants will be initially assessed on written tests and/or projects on a Pass/Fail basis. The primary objective of the initial evaluation is to verify that participants have acquired the necessary competencies in each subject. If a participant is granted a passing grade, then they will receive a final mark (A, B, C or D) distributed on a learning curve. If a participant receives three failing grades, they will be required to withdraw from the program. We believe this rigorous evaluation process preserves the value of the program and quality of each individual's experience.
