Deusto MBA is not a traditional program and is not for everyone. It is designed for participants who seek to enhance their managerial competencies and skills, whilst developing the appropriate attitudes and aptitudes for solving the management and leadership challenges of the 21st century. In short, we are seeking to help shape authentic managers of change who are prepared to look for more complex but sustainable solutions to the corporate global challenges of today and of the future.
Deusto MBA aims to train leaders and this can only be achieved in small groups. Therefore, in order to optimize the transmission of knowledge and the acquisition of skills, the Deusto MBA limits its classes to 40 participants.
Diversity in the Background of Our professional and academic staff
Diversity means that each group is offered a variety of ways to reason, analyze and approach relevant concepts. This also provides a crucial synergy that enriches the learning experience.
geographical and cultural variety
The global orientation of the international Deusto MBA gathers a group from different backgrounds, cultures and personal experiences who study and work together as a team.
The presence of women in the course
In order to break with the typical 'glass ceiling' of traditional MBAs, where average female participation stands at a scant 30%, a balanced presence of women is another criteria employed in forming an MBA group at Deusto.
Deusto MBA delivers a unique experience to participants through its approach and methodology. The differential nature of the program is encapsulated in four specific features of the curriculum:
1. The Approach to Sustainability:
The Deusto MBA program focuses on sustainable business. The approach to sustainability, therefore, is embedded in all areas of business: Economic Environment, Strategy, Finance and Accounting, Marketing, Entrepreneurship, Organizational Development and Human Capital, Operations, and Management Control. The integration of sustainability within the business strategy involves many transformations that take place at the different level where business firms acts , which are all covered in the Deusto MBA. It focuses on a relational approach from the individual and collective leadership to the political role played by firms at the global governance:
The individual sustainable leadership, the impact of individual decision-making process into organizational change, requiring managers and leaders to develop new skills and knowledge such as a deeper comprehension of societal challenges, a broader approach of the company productivity and growth and the capacity to work in collaboration across profit and nonprofit spheres.
The collective sustainable business change, reconceiving sustainable products and services embedding environmental, social and governance concerns as key innovative processes, and the recognition that new business models are emerging embedding sustainability and shared value as a key driver for sustainable growth and competitiveness.
The embedding of sustainability into the Organizational strategy, creating shared value and reconceiving the intersection between society and corporate performance, meeting society's broader challenges and reconnecting business success with sustainable growth ad societal progress and social justice
The Sustainable global supply chain, how shared value strategies connects through technology and social innovation improving efficiency, creating sustainable jobs and building social and economic wealth throughout the global supply chains.
The networked governance model: the changing political role played by business firms at the sphere of global governance becoming a key reference for international principles and the meeting of global environmental, social and governance challenges through the growing interconnection of global sustainable business standards and multi-stakeholder initiatives
Therefore, sustainable businesses and committed managers would become global leaders and relevant actors who are capable of solving the pending problems on the global agenda allowing companies to growth creating economic value and at the same time creating societal and environmental value and leading social innovation and corporate accountability. These new businesses may take up new roles and will become part of the sustainable global supply chain. Other dynamic capabilities and sustainable policies, practices, behaviors, and methods may emerge. Finally, the concept of leadership will also be closely connected with that of sustainability principles and behaviours.
2. The approach to the Digital Networked Enterprise:
Throughout the Deusto MBA program, the digital and networked world of individuals and organizations is analyzed at five levels:
The digital individual: the impact of information technologies on people.
The virtual team: teams living in different places and time zones that need to be managed through the new digital environment.
The integrated organization: the enterprise applications that help businesses optimize their resources and improve their internal processes.
The networked enterprise: how technology allows networked coordination between enterprises within the supply chain.
And finally the internetworked business: the superior level in which all society (individuals and enterprises) is connected through information technology.
The current model, now on its way out, implies a collaborative, horizontal way of thinking and working. That is why new practices, behaviours, and processes are emerging and businesses are taking up new roles. Therefore, at each level, the Deusto MBA program examines the impact of different enabling information technologies and digital platforms on individual and team behavior, organizational practices and methods, business processes, culture and structure, and business transformation.
3. Innovation and Entrepreneurship and a hands-on approach to a Real Project:
In the area of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, the Deusto MBA program uses two initial building blocks as methodological approaches throughout the program:
In each semester, there are one-week modules on the relevant topics:
-Early Growth-oriented Entrepreneurship.
From day one, each participant actively engages in a project that lasts throughout the Deusto MBA. The participant chooses a project from one of two relevant areas:
An innovative start-up: the participant is put in contact with new entrepreneurial ideas, working closely with Deusto Entrepreneurship Center in setting up a new start-up venture.
An innovative, intrapreneurial project within a company: in this case, a commitment will be made between Deusto Business School, the participant, and a company. The company will design an internal project to be implemented by the participant that will be monitored by the training program.
In both cases, the participant will have three tutors: an academic tutor, who will support the student from an academic point of view; a corporate tutor, who will track their progress in the program, and a personal coach, who will be in charge of fostering the participant abilities. All three tutors will provide the participant with the vision, tools, organizational skills and the personal competences necessary to become an executive of an innovative business.
4. THE SERVICE LEARNING PROGRAM:
The program extends the scope of work to the impact of companies in communities in developing or emerging countries. For a period not exceeding 5 weeks, these field examples offer participants a unique, transformative and vital opportunity to put into practice lessons learnt in the classroom, inviting them to become competent, conscious, committed and compassionate leaders.
Semester 1-Spring: The enviroment and the Company
During this semester, students will become familiar with the content of the course and the skills needed to heighten their awareness of the context and environment in which companies operate.
Then, students will work on the execution of strategy, i.e. how to sell a product or service, how to organize a company and how to prepare to implement operations.
From an international perspective, country analyses and the macro and micro perspectives of the global economy, students will gain the skills needed for formulating a strategy for aligning global trends with local markets. This will be supported by financial analysis and an examination of capital markets.
With this background, students will master the implementation of any strategy, will identify the most critical parts of the company, and will discover the link between them. Managers-to-be need to be aware of change management techniques and how to work in teams in order to transform them and/or a company.
Semester 2- Fall: Electives and Service Learning
This semester takes place in Bilbao and New York, and focuses on the elective courses. The students will be able to choose electives from four different tracks: Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Finance, Sustainability and the Digital and Networked Enterprise.
It is expected that students will chose four electives courses during this period: two in Bilbao and two in NY.
