The program is an eighteen month long part time program mixing class room work with team based projects. Two international trips are integrated into the curriculum to provide the students with background information on how other cultures learn and work. A capstone project (thesis) based on a real world problem of importance to the student and their employer integrates the knowledge developed throughout the program and provides the student with a transition from learning to actual practice.
The four dimensions of the educational program are:
The program is composed of nine modules, including the capstone project.
The sessions of module 5 and 7 are held at our international partner universities Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State University, U.S.A. and Tongji University, Shanghai, China to enhance global and inter-cultural business skills. During the two trips, students will experience how other cultures learn and work. The study trip to the USA will take place in May, the Study trip to China in March. The study trips are entirely organized by the KLU and expenses regarding teaching materials, meals, excursions and supporting program are covered. Please note that costs regarding flights and visa arrangements are not covered. The program coordinator will provide you with all important information regarding visa applications. Please make sure that you book your flights and apply for your visa well in advance. Please note that both study trips are fully recognized as educational leave. We will provide you with the relevant confirmation.
"After my Bachelor Degree and more than 5 years professional experience in Supply Chain I was looking for a MBA program which is – part-time, focused on Supply Chain Management and has an international context. The program at THE KLU provided all of that combined with great lectures and professors, challenging case studies and an interesting educational trip."
