Most MBA programs offer nothing more than a sterilized view of business and the wider environment that business people have to operate in. They fail to deliver on the primary objective of providing students with the necessary 360° insight of the world – the good and the bad – because they are not rooted in the all- important “human factors” that ironically are both the problem and the solution.
At its core, a good MBA program should develop and enhance the skills and understanding of Management, Strategy, Creativity and People, in so doing preparing students for positions of leadership. Is it then any wonder that humanity is ill equipped to face the many destructive and corrosive challenges, when most leaders in politics and business are unable to offer any realistic solutions, other than archaic and failed dogmas.
The MBA program at SBS delivers, by providing a deeper understanding of the “human factors” concentrating on both the critical components and constructive potentials. Additionally, there is the added focus on key business fields – Fashion, Retail, Hospitality and Tourism, Family Business or General Business Management – in which students can build a career, embark on a new business venture or enter the world of Politics, Economics, or International Relations.
