Omnium Global Executive MBA program visits India for the second time

September 13, 2010

TORONTO, ON — A pres­ti­gious Exec­u­tive MBA pro­gram which takes its busi­ness par­tic­i­pants to eight key cen­tres of inter­na­tion­al busi­ness on four con­ti­nents will return to India for the sec­ond time this Octo­ber.

The Omni­um Glob­al Exec­u­tive MBA pro­gram gives busi­ness par­tic­i­pants an oppor­tu­ni­ty to earn MBA degrees from two renowned busi­ness schools, the Rot­man School of Man­age­ment at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Toron­to and the Uni­ver­si­ty of St. Gallen in Switzer­land. Over an 18 month peri­od, this part-time pro­gram teach­es core busi­ness dis­ci­plines from a glob­al per­spec­tive by tak­ing par­tic­i­pants to eight impor­tant cen­tres of inter­na­tion­al busi­ness on four con­ti­nents, in Cana­da, Brazil, India, Chi­na, Switzer­land and Hun­gary. Omni­um par­tic­i­pants not only study dur­ing six two-week mod­ules at local uni­ver­si­ties but also build their pro­fes­sion­al net­work and apply their learn­ing in hands-on projects, address­ing real chal­lenges fac­ing local com­pa­nies. This pres­ti­gious pro­gram is geared towards expe­ri­enced pro­fes­sion­als, who on aver­age have over 12 years of work expe­ri­ence, and who are tar­get­ed by their com­pa­nies to take on a senior lead­er­ship posi­tion with an inter­na­tion­al man­date to it.

“Omni­um is a tru­ly inter­na­tion­al pro­gram with busi­ness par­tic­i­pants from almost every con­ti­nent. It allows these accom­plished pro­fes­sion­als to immerse them­selves in dis­tinc­tive busi­ness cul­tures few can under­stand from a dis­tance and to build up a pro­fes­sion­al net­work,” says Beat­rix Dart, a pro­fes­sor and asso­ciate dean at the Rot­man School.

The cur­rent Omni­um class, which will grad­u­ate in June 2011, will be study­ing in India from Octo­ber 9 to 21 as part of their pro­gram. For the first time, the Omni­um pro­gram will trav­el to New Del­hi for a week-long vis­it, which will be host­ed by the Inter­na­tion­al Man­age­ment Insti­tute. The pro­gram will also spend a week at the India School of Busi­ness (ISB), a part­ner insti­tu­tion of Omni­um, in Hyder­abad. While in India, the par­tic­i­pants will be immersed in top­ics such as Busi­ness Ethics, Entre­pre­neur­ship. Glob­al Mar­ket­ing, and Eco­nom­ics. Anoth­er major com­po­nent of the two-week mod­ule in India will be the expo­sure to well-respect­ed Indi­an orga­ni­za­tions and busi­ness lead­ers, who will be guest lec­tur­ers dur­ing the pro­gram.

“Dur­ing our mod­ule in India, I was impressed by this country’s cul­ture, its his­to­ry and poten­tial. When con­sid­er­ing learn­ing about doing busi­ness in a glob­al envi­ron­ment, a pro­gram such as Omni­um with one or more mod­ules in India is at the top of my list of rec­om­men­da­tions” says Andreas Plimp­ton, Chief Oper­at­ing Offi­cer of Comar­tis AG who grad­u­at­ed from the Omni­um pro­gram in June 2010.
