7 Online Modules, a dissertation, and a week-long residence
Offering the best of both worlds, the Alfred Ford School of Management combines the flexibility of online study and the interaction, focus and networking potential of face-to-face teamwork during the week-long residency. In a minimum of 18 months, candidates complete seven online modules, a guided dissertation and participate in a one-week innovative module at the Alfred Ford School of Management residency in Belgium.
The e-learning modules offer you an opportunity to continue working in your own environment throughout the program while engaging with the faculty and peers via the extremely well-designed and organized virtual platform. The curriculum is rooted in contemporary business fundamentals, including the principal management tools and skills, such as Strategic Management, Corporate Finance, and Marketing for the 21st century. Our tutors are experienced professionals and academics in their fields and serve as an encouraging guide, available throughout their module.
Global immersion, experienced during the residency module, sets leadership skills in practice through teamwork, personal reflection and global connections with your peers and working professionals.
