Q: How Does Your
Management Training Compare to MBA Programs?
A: The Institute does not offer MBA degrees. Although the body-of-knowledge of
our management education program
might be shared with some other academic programs, all the Institute's courses and
projects have a customized and experiential-learning orientation, rather
than generic and theoretical-learning orientation. The Institute management education
programs vary greatly in learning content, delivery and evaluation methods.

backed by well-respected resources, however, the our Executive Education
programs differs from traditional academic MBA programs in the following
- Please note that the Institute is a research and
professional training Institute not an academic university. Our management training programs are designed for
executives and their corporate needs, they
are not theoretical academic programs for entry-level high school
students. We do not accept students seeking we does not accept
students seeking initial employment, postsecondary education, or
initial vocational licensing.
- The Institute uses proprietary "executive-driven" management education model as
opposed to traditional "teacher-driven" education model.

practical ideas from the world's best management minds than any other
Institute. Our management education content is success-oriented. The
Institute researchers study the works of the most successful companies,
managers and influential management thinkers to identify their best
practices, critical success factors and learned lessons. Researched CEOs

leading companies such as AT&T, IBM, McDonald's, Microsoft, Sony, Exxon
Mobil, Boeing and Toyota. The researchers also conduct a Critical analysis of the applications and limitations of popular management practices,
models and frameworks, including the works of the world’s leading
management gurus, such as Adams, Dell, Drucker, Gates, Hamel, Kanter, Maslow,
McKenna, Moore, Ohmae, Peters, Nonaka, Negroponte, Shapiro, and
Welch. The researchers then incorporate their findings into the
management education program to provide students with the latest and
most advanced thinking.
- Our education emphasizes critical thinking, problem solving and
innovation far more than memorization.
- Learning assessments are project-based vs. quiz-based
- There is a “common” body of knowledge but there is no “fixed” body
of knowledge" this is because of the continuously changing business
environment (technologies, markets and organizations). Our courses and
projects address up to date industry challenges and opportunities.

best practices and providing sample deliverables, checklists, decision
models, templates and resources.
