What is "blended"?


In the part-time MBA, you “blend” learning face-to-face with online studies. You therefore benefit from the flexibility of interactive online learning at your own pace while also learning from your peers and world-class faculty online and face-to-face. Keep your current job, enhance your expertise, and build your network in one program.
