Deusto Business School is launching its international full-time MBA in January 2013. Our intention is for it to become the most prominent and international program of the School.
The MBA is the result of two converging realities:
a. On one hand, the long-established prestige of Deusto in the education of the most representative corporate leaders in Spain today due to its rigorous approach to the fundamentals of management.
b. On the other hand, the new international trends in business education, centered on the three dimensions of sustainability, digital networked strategy and innovation and entrepreneurship. Specifically, by creating its new MBA, Deusto Business School aims to be a pioneering school directly inspired by the framework of the UN-supported initiative, Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME).
Deusto MBA delivers a unique experience to participants through its approach and methodology. The differential nature of the program is encapsulated in four specific features of the curriculum:
- The Approach to Sustainability
- The approach to the Digital Networked Enterprise
- Innovation and Entrepreneurship and a hands-on approach to a Real Project
- The Sustain4 Service Learning Program:
1. Theoretical Training in the Classroom
2. Practical Training in the South (or in the headquarters of a non-governmental organization in the North)
SEMESTER 1: THE ENVIRONMENT:
During this semester, students will become familiar with the content of the course and the skills needed to heighten their awareness of the context and environment in which companies operate.
From an international perspective, country analyses and the macro and micro perspectives of the global economy, students will gain the skills needed for formulating a strategy for aligning global trends with local markets. This will be supported by
financial analysis and an examination of capital markets.
SEMESTER 2: THE COMPANY
During this semester, students will work on the execution of strategy, i.e. how to sell a product or service, how to organize a company and how to prepare to implement operations.
The objective of this semester is for students to master the implementation of any strategy, identify the most critical parts of the company, and discover the link between them. However, to introduce a strategy, managers need to be aware of change
management techniques and how to work in teams in order to transform them and/or a company.
SEMESTER 3: ELECTIVES AND “SUSTAIN4” SERVICE LEARNING.
This semester takes place in San Sebastian and New York, and focuses on the elective courses. The students will be able to choose electives from four different tracks: Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Finance, Sustainability and the Digital and
It is expected that students will chose four electives courses during this period: two in San Sebastián and two in NY.
