OUR FACULTY

UACS SBEM program is supported by over 30 scholars, professors of management practice, and international visiting professors. Their combined knowledge and experience provides the students with a unique opportunity to learn from the best. The program at UACS SBEM offers thorough exposure to theoretical and practical issues.

UACS SBEM Faculty combines:

ADVANTAGES OF THE PROGRAM AND DELIVERY MODE:

Many instructors have discovered that a highly interactive question and answer technique overcomes the problems of the traditional lecture and makes it an effective learning experience. Instead of providing all the

information themselves, the professors try to elicit as much from their students by asking direct questions,initiating group discussions and solving mini case studies. The groups meet on Wednesday, Thursday andFriday afternoons, as well as on Saturday mornings.

Note: Lectures held by visiting professors arescheduled as intensive courses (Monday – Saturday).

All UACS MBA programs and concentrations are offered in English.

The UACS MBA program provides an excellent opportunity for experienced professionals to obtain their Master’s degree by following a schedule that minimizes the disruption of their work and personal goals. Our MBA program is structured in two layers. The first layer consists of core courses and it is organized into five streams:

Strategy and positioning(Strategic Management, Advanced CorporateFinance, Strategic Marketing)

Leading change and managing people(Advanced Organizational Behavior, Human Resource Management, Leadership, Corporate Governance,Advanced Public Relations, Managerial Economics)

Measurement and performance systems(Managerial Accounting, Operations Management,Research Methods for Business)

Systems thinking(IT Applications for Business)

Globalization(International Management and International Marketing)

The second layer includes elective or concentration courses. Therefore, it allows the students to either precede to studies in General Management or concentrate in a particular course or area.

Currently, we offer an MBA program with Finance concentration (including courses such as Financial Markets and Institutions, Portfolio Analysis, Asset and Liabilities Management, Risk Management) and an MBA program with Marketing concentration (courses include Promotion and PR, Advertising, Distribution Channels Management, Retailing Management, Consumer Behavior).

In order to meet specific company needs, UACS can customize the MBA concentrations towards HR, ICT, Project Management, and other areas.

The lectures are organized in a way that all students go through the curriculum as a group. During that period, they gain a wide range of new skills and improve their analytical abilities by combining the coursework with their everyday professional experience.

WHAT DO WE TEACH AND HOW DO WE TEACH

At graduate level, we believe that the instructor’s responsibilities include:

  • Asking the right questions
  • Leading the class discussions
  • Helping the students find their own solution to the problems raised.

UACS MBA is based on Harvard Business School teaching method named “PCL” which stands for Participant Centered learning.

The core concept is that Participants are in the focus of the learning process.

The instructors ask the right questions and initiate class discussion and interaction. The primary goal is applying the knowledge and gaining practical skills.

Apart from teaching theory and facts, we employ leading-edge teaching techniques, such as:

  • case studies,
  • role plays,
  • problem solving,
  • individual and team projects, and
  • simulations

So far, we have 16 faculty members holding a teaching certificate according to the Participant- Centered Learning methods.

MASTER THESIS SEMESTER
UACS organizes a Master Thesis Semester which allows the students to work as a group under the supervision of a mentor. This is designed in order to help them complete their Master Thesis in four months, if they follow the prescribed course load.
Master Thesis Semester is a capstone project which aims for:

  • Introducing the methods of academic and/or professional research
  • Guiding students into delivering project work within the predetermined deadlines

By attending this semester, UACS students will have an access to:

Sessions on writing approximately five chapters of the Master Thesis. Each session organized within these seminar series will provide a step-by- step guide to writing each of the chapters;

A part of the conference sessions will provide the participants with the opportunity to present their work in progress in front of their peers and UACS faculty;

Apart from holding regular meetings with the mentor, the student will have regular consultations with the Graduate Student Coordinator regarding the technical details of the Master Thesis;

The sessions provide the possibility for forming alliances with classmates and UACS faculty, who share the similar research interest;
