What’s New

A New Vision for Executive Education

The Sobey School is re-examining how it does executive education.

“The Sobey School aims to make an impact with purpose and to mobilize our research and knowledge into the business community,” said Sobey School dean Patricia Bradshaw, who acknowledges the key role that senior business leaders play in this knowledge transferrance.

This year, the executive and professional development department of Saint Mary’s was moved under the Sobey School umbrella, providing the school an opportunity to align its offerings and ensure market needs are being met. “It’s a time when we can line the offerings up with what we know about the current state of the executive development market and think about where the gaps are,” says Dr. Bradshaw.

Therefore, coming out of a year of being recognized by Ivy Exec as the 5th ranked EMBA program in Canada, the AACSB-Accredited Sobey EMBA is getting a renovation.

 “We recognize we are in a time of market upheaval,” notes EMBA Director Dr. Wendy Carroll. “At the same time, we know there are key things we are doing remarkably well. It’s an opportune time to deploy our resources to transform the program, and ensure we are addressing relevant needs of the business community with rigour and excellence.”

The program celebrated a 25-year anniversary in April. “We have been reviewing our curriculum for a few years now. This anniversary gave us a chance to connect with an even wider field of alumni to really identify our strengths and determine how best to continue offering top-notch executive education in today’s environment.”

Over the next year, the school will focus on crafting a transformed iteration of the successful program, to build a solid foundation for the next 25 years. Student intake has been paused until the process is complete in 2019.

      IE Business School and the Singapore Management University (SMU) are to launch a joint Executive MBA programme from September. The programme will focus on business in south east Asia.

      “We really wanted to create a programme for people looking for a part-time MBA in the south east Asian market,” says Martin Boehm, dean of programmes at IE. “We’re trying to reach out to Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines – places within three to five hour travelling time from Singapore.”

      The niche one-year programme, which will use a blend of face-to-face and online learning, is designed for up to just 30 students. “We have to be sure that these students can cope with the pressure,” says Prof Boehm. Four of the face-to-face sessions will take place in Singapore, the fifth in Madrid.

      The joint degree will include a team project that runs through the year-long programme and is conducted with an external company. The programme will cost S$75,000.

      SMU’s Lee Kong Chian school of business already runs an EMBA programme in Singapore while IE runs a suite of EMBA programmes, including one programme run jointly with Brown University, the Ivy League US university in Rhode Island.
