Your transformative journey commences with a set of six core courses covering management essentials, followed by core and elective courses on management control, marketing, strategy, business analytics and digital leadership. These classes ensure you have a solid foundation in leadership from which to build from.
We begin your transformation by building within you a strong core of knowledge in the following five key areas, each involving highly interactive academic sessions, workshops and group works.
Where Change Happens
The Solvay Career Advancement Program (CAP) is where your knowledge and skills are transformed into change. With the support of a personal coach, your fellow classmates and the extensive Solvay alumni network, this is where it all comes together. By learning to leverage your knowledge and skills and discovering your leadership style, you will emerge well-positioned to have a transformational impact on the people, places and projects you influence.
A Deep Dive into Learning by Doing
Solvay Labs is where you get your hands dirty. Using the skills developed in your Core classes, the Labs challenge you to experiment with innovation, sustainability and strategy. This is your opportunity to test, explore and develop a concept, turning what was once just an idea into a practical business solution.
This is the first opportunity participants have to leverage their newly acquired skills and critically assess the sustainability policy of a real company. Within the framework of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, this project is about using innovative ideas to generate sustainable change.
Earning an Executive MBA takes time – a commodity that is often in short supply. You shouldn’t have to choose between an advanced degree and your work. That’s why Solvay designed a schedule that lets you remain fully effective at work while fully engaged in your studies. The program lasts 18 months and runs from October to April. Classes are typically held one long week-end per month built on a blended learning approach. This creates an interesting combination of on-campus sessions, organized from Thursday evening to Saturday evening, and asynchronous 4-hour online seminars, offered for each of the courses.
