Class time will be 13 days in total and you will have class 3 days per month (i.e. Tuesday to Thursday) to allow students to maintain their full time careers.  In between classes, students will do assignments and group assignments.

Lecturers will be very strict on attendance, punctuality and participation – homework must be done.  This is a professional qualification from one of the most reputable Business Schools in the world and certainly not just a certificate of attendance.
