The Global Executive MBA is a fifteen-month course that is completed in four trimesters. The program comprises four modules, each focusing on a theme: Foundation, Globalisation, Innovation and Transformation.
Each module has two 12-credit-point units.
Structurally, each module features a one-week residential unit plus a unit spread over blocks of intensive days at three-week intervals.
The foundation module provides the academic and practice base for the GEMBA program. It is preceded by a two-day orientation residential workshop that emphasises the importance of, and competencies required for, leading management teams in fast-paced, global contemporary organisations. The first unit consists of Global political economy and business models and strategy. Then, four component topics are completed in the next unit: Executive leadership 1: Leadership mindset, design thinking, strategic marketing and business analytics. These units are presented in an integrated pedagogy, and also combine to set up the international business project to be undertaken in a European market in the following module.
The globalisation module begins in Europe with a one-week immersive study of global business strategy at a leading European business school, and a live consulting project for an Australian company in a European market. The subsequent unit based in Melbourne comprises Executive leadership II: Global mindset, sustainable strategy in the 21st century, global logistics and operations and financial accounting.
The globalisation theme of the module integrates the material, develops earlier studies and international project experiences, and also contributes to setting up the content and project for the following Asian module.
The innovation module commences with a one-week intensive unit in China, based at a leading partner business school. China business strategy provides a deep immersion in business culture, strategy and practice in China, and involves intensive class-based work, an international business consulting project and direct engagement with business leaders in the location. The associated project will be grounded in the exploration of innovation and entrepreneurship opportunities in the China market. In the second unit of the innovation module, the class address Executive leadership III: Innovation mindset, corporate finance, innovation and entrepreneurship and commercialisation of technology. These topics are developed in an integrated design; as well as tackling the global and executive-level issues of innovation, they establish the foundation for the transformation work in the final module.
The transformation module builds on earlier studies and consolidates the program learning and experiences to develop transformative executive capability for a complex global environment. In the international unit based in a leading American business school, innovation and design processes are the central feature, and the applied transformation projects and engagement with innovative high-tech organisations exemplify the purpose and the approach. Subsequently, the Executive leadership IV: Transformation mindset topic supports the module theme of leading business transformation. Corporate governance deals with the legal, regulatory and board-level issues facing executives in organisations. The executive masterclass seminars and workshops provide critical opportunities to customise the program: expert faculty and leading practitioners co-create content with participants that reflects the developmental and experiential priorities of the class. Corporate strategy provides the capstone opportunity to consolidate the entire program.
