Program brief:

You have a good job and aspire to go up to the next level but you do not have the required experience and qualification. No worries – you are not alone. There’s a huge number of employees who feel the same way and share the same problem that you have:

  • Lack of professional knowledge;
  • Lack of qualification;
  • Have a good job which you don’t want to lose while pursuing your studies;
  • Have a family that you don’t want to leave behind.

OUR MBA is designed to give you the tools and knowledge to grow without interrupting your current plans.

We teach 8  modules throughout the program. Each module takes 4 weeks to finish. Once we have finished teaching all the 8 modules we will start over again. This teaching plan gives students the chance to study at their own convenience- meaning students can skip a month or more due to personal or other reasons and they can join the missed module when we teach it again after 8 months.

Students can choose to join one module at a time and may not necessarily complete the entire program at one go. For example they may just want to do a few modules each summer and finish the program in 2 or 3 years. It is entirely up to the individual student.

IBAS gives our students the flexibility that no other institution will allow.
