We offer a variety of MBA preparation discussion class formats to suit your needs, including:
Case studies: Analyze real-world business scenarios and develop strategic solutions to overcome key challenges.
Video, news article, or podcast-centered dialogues: Review the material independently and then examine and discuss the resource to exchange valuable insights and broaden your perspective.
Topic-based discussions: Explore relevant and timely themes related to business and management, such as corporate social responsibility, leadership, and digital transformation.
Debates: Develop critical thinking and persuasive skills by presenting and defending arguments on a given subject.
Additionally, we keep our class sizes small, with a maximum of five people per class, to ensure personalized attention and meaningful engagement. Our sessions are particularly helpful to people whose academic training to this point has not required as intense personal interactions and active participation with classmates and professors as the top business schools do.
