Program organisation

The Program is delivered in the form of weekend studies. Meetings take place once a month at the seat of the WSB University in Poznań on Fridays from 16:00 to 21:00, and Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 to 16:00.

One meeting in the first year includes a team building trip for the entire group. On this occasion classes are organized near Poznan outside the University’s seat. The University covers the cost of organization, board and lodging. The international exchange scheme makes it possible for participants in the Aalto Executive MBA in Poznan to complete selected modules abroad in Helsinki, Singapore and Seoul.

Modern teaching methodology

Didactic methods used in the Aalto Executive MBA in Poznan stress interaction and active student participation. Teaching takes different forms – lectures, group discussions, case studies, tests, simulations and presentations. Students are encouraged and required to relate academic knowledge to their actual work which ensures a dynamic learning process. Active participation in classes is graded.
As part of the Program, students work individually or in groups to develop projects based on data from their own companies or other data collected by them such as personal audits, assessment of the competitive condition of the company, analysis of its financial standing or product marketing strategies.

Didactic materials

At each of the meetings every participant of the Program receives a file with the full set of didactic materials free of charge. The materials are prepared by teachers and adjusted to the specific nature of the subject taught. They always include the teacher’s CV, rules of obtaining credit and, depending on the subject, materials prepared individually by teachers – summaries, exercises and additional problems to solve at home, case studies, theoretical materials, regulations, questionnaires and tests. A specialised library has been set up, specifically for the needs of the Aalto Executive MBA in Poznan studies, with all publications recommended by Polish and foreign teachers.
