The SBS MBA program has been hosting visiting faculty from IESE Business School and other top business schools, which provides a unique, rigorous and challenging program, taught by a faculty recognized as specialists in their own fields. In addition, SBS faculty is proficiently trained to deliver the case study methodology, which is central to the MBA program. MBA participants will study from a database of applied knowledge with over 130 relevant case studies, which are applicable to their careers. SBS recently introduced the Modular MBA program to serve the needs of those aspiring to pursue an MBA which allows them to physically interact with fellow participants and get insights from faculty, but cannot afford to be available 3 evenings a week, typical of the Evening MBA. The Modular MBA is delivered in two weeks, where participants learn from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm every day, over a span of two and a half years. The two-week modules are spaced evenly throughout the entire length of the program.
Each year, SBS MBA participants study in IESE Business School together with MBA participants from Lagos Business School in an international module in order to gain world-class insights and develop their global business management skills.
