What is it about your MBA program that students love the most?

 An out-of-the-ordinary, personalized MBA leveraging maximum diversity for entrepreneurial thinkers.

Tell us about one new course that has recently been added to your curriculum in the last year.  How do you see this influencing the current cohort?

 “Tech Primer for Non-Techies” – Many entrepreneurs lose precious time in finding ideal tech partners and later in learning how to communicate and work effectively with them. In this module, we attempt to fill that gap through the intricacies of using Information Technology for either creating a tech product or optimizing a non-tech product/service using IT. The course is empowering our students to more confidently approach their tech-related ideas and to collaborate more effectively with their tech partners.  

If you could invite a fictional character to lecture in one of your courses, who would it be and what course would he/she teach?  Why?

 Sherlock Holmes – He is a master of logic and observation who relies on sound data and intuitive reasoning to propose his theories. In A Scandal in Bohemia, Sherlock states that “Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.” This is an insightful lesson for our students during Entrepreneurial Mindset, reminding us that one must be open-minded to continuously pivot an idea until it fits a market, instead of the other way around.
