SINGAPORE, March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- In collaboration with three of the world's leading business schools, EMERITUS Institute of Management launched today with a mission to bring quality, top-tier business education to emerging leaders throughout the world. The founding academic institutions include MIT Sloan Executive Education, Columbia Business School Executive Education and Tuck Executive Education at Dartmouth College. Each founding academic institution plays a unique and pivotal role in establishing the academic rigor of the Institute.
EMERITUS offers management programs to a student base of accomplished mid-level managers at organizations across the globe with a special focus on high growth markets in Asia, Middle East & Africa, India & China. Programs are delivered via EMERITUS' "Globally Connected Classroom." Faculty lectures comprise one-third of the learning and are delivered online. Action learning and peer-to-peer learning make up two-thirds of the learning and are implemented through small groups of four to six students. EMERITUS takes a cohort based approach to teaching and places strong emphasis on experiential learning through simulations, role plays and projects.
"Using technology and curriculum innovation, EMERITUS opens doors for tens of thousands of working professionals who want to pursue a high-quality education while continuing to work, offering them access to an affordable business education," says Ashwin Damera, Executive Director and Member of the Academic Board of EMERITUS. "I benefitted tremendously from my top-tier MBA. The team at EMERITUS has been educated by the top business schools in the world. We want to provide access to a much larger global audience and give them the skills needed to be the business leaders of tomorrow."
"Our collaboration with EMERITUS Institute of Management expands considerably on MIT Sloan Executive Education's digital capabilities and provides access to our faculty's lectures and learning materials for the next generation of managers in parts of the world where a top-tier management education might not otherwise be reachable or affordable," said Peter Hirst, Associate Dean of Executive Education at MIT Sloan School of Management.
