Programme Schedule

The programme takes place in modular format on the Europe Campus, Asia Campus and Middle East Campus depending on the section you join. Most people opt to start on the campus that’s closest to home, but some decide to build their business travel around modules on the other side of the world. The campuses are equally diverse with world-class faculty. Whichever route you select, you will study on all three campuses and come together as a single class for the second half of the programme. The class graduates together in Singapore.

Independent study time

In addition to the time spent on campus, equivalent to 12 working weeks, you will also need to allow roughly 5 weeks in total for independent study: preparation, writing 2 implementation essays and 3 reflection papers, your final project and optional peer work-shadowing. This adds up to about 10 or 12 hours of homework a week.
