"The epiphany I had in Innovation class is that innovation is not purely technological breakthrough. Innovation can - and should - be in everything the company does business. I am glad to apply these skills and more importantly this mindset in my daily work, when supporting my teams around the world."

The TIEMBA is designed to address your development from a number of angles; validating and expanding what you have learned on the job, offering new perspectives, strengthening your foundation to push forward and elevating your leadership skills. Our diverse faculty will expose you to the latest business concepts from both the Eastern and Western schools of thought. The teaching will test your assumptions and beliefs. Your classmates will challenge your current practices.
