Team Approach

Work as a team

The Broad Executive MBA is all about teamwork. After all, the exchange between professional colleagues is essential for anyone who wants to get ahead in the business world. That’s why we take a collaborative approach to learning, allowing you to work with the same group of first-rate professionals for duration of the program.

For our Broad Executive MBA courses, we carefully design teams of four-six people to ensure that each group will have diverse perspectives to learn from, while maintaining a balance of knowledge and experience across teams. Teams determine when and how they meet–often leveraging technology to ease the coordination of their busy schedules.

Join a Cohort

Students work collaborative with a diverse group of professionals throughout the program. By sharing the same academic experiences, students are able to integrate their learning and reflect on previous coursework with their classmates. This structured “cohort” approach helps students to understand each project from multiple perspectives, grow from the strengths of others, and build long-lasting professional relationships. This concept of joining a program, as opposed to taking classes, distinguishes us from typical part-time MBAs.

Build Real-world Skills

Because our unique team-based program mirrors the actual business world, you’ll develop critical real-world skills like negotiation, communication, and collaboration. You’ll learn to leverage each other’s strengths effectively and efficiently. In the end, it all comes together to help propel you forward in your career.
