Organizational environments are changing rapidly. Organizations need to operate fast and agile. Organizations are looking towards capable leaders, whose judgment is sound and who provide extraordinary insights. Leaders who are capaple of taking the interests of multiple stakeholders across multiple scenarios into consideration. Our Executive MBA encompasses academic, personal and societal development. Aligning your career ambitions with this broader awareness is the next step in becoming a rounded, responsible business leader.

The TIAS EMBA program is organized into three theme-based blocks of courses. Each block is concluded by an integration module, in which insights from previous courses are synthesized and applied to business challenges. We offer the program in a flexible way. You always start by following block 1. Afterwards you can take block 2 and 3 when it suits you, provided that you complete the program within 7 years.

Block 1 – The Role of Business in a Complex World
Block 1 introduces basic foundations of business by courses such as Managerial Control and Finance. The position of business in its Supply Chain, in the Economy and in Society at large will ensure that a broader view on the role of business in the world is developed. An international module in collaboration with a partner school will enhance this broader view by understanding the challenges of businesses in emerging markets.

Block 2 – Positioning for Long Term Sustainable Value
You will develop more advanced business knowledge to understand both the internal challenges faced by organizations and the positioning in their competitive environment. The combination of these insights enables you to develop new business ideas and to develop these ideas into potential new ventures.

Block 3 – Change for Impact
After having chosen future directions, how can organizations make change happen? What does it take to implement your strategy? What change approach is needed to make things real? How can diverse perspectives be managed to enable change? Insights are synthesized in the last integration module. Further impact is generated by means of the Capstone Project. You work on a real-life problem for your company, one of your class mates' companies, or your own start-up.

Especially for professionals working in food and agribusiness, TIAS and Wageningen University, the #1 Agricultural University in the world, developed the Executive MBA in Food & Agribusiness, which is an optional track of the Executive MBA program

Why this Executive MBA?

'The program has helped me enormously as a manager and as a leader within the organization by learning to look at it from different perspectives.

The training can help you to broaden your field of vision. You will take a critical look at how you can improve yourself within your own workfield. I have a young family and a busy job, I could plan everything well because you are away from home one weekend a month.'

'The Executive MBA enables people to make decisions about complex, strategic challenges that a company faces. And that from a thorough knowledge of the different functional areas in the organization.

MBA students are able to integrate those knowledge areas and embrace the total perspective. We focus heavily on personal development and personal leadership skills, because we strongly believe that if you want to grow in your career, you also have to grow as a person.

We pay attention to skills, personal growth, leadership, getting to know yourself, getting to know your own role in the group and learning how to profile yourself better.'
