Teaching Methods and Faculty

Teaching methods include lectures, discussions, case analyses, student presentations, group projects, computer simulations, and guest speakers from industry and government. The curriculum and teaching approach have been adapted to the experience levels of seasoned professionals and to the demands of a compressed time schedule. Each residential session involves 36 hours of classroom time during two six-day weeks. The Program combines conceptual and applied materials, which are integrated in the classroom, with evening study work which provides an opportunity for learning from and interacting with fellow participants.

Classes in the IMM Program are taught by the senior faculty of the collaborating schools, and by selected faculty from other universities in Europe and North America. All are accomplished instructors who have taught extensively in executive education programs, have substantial research and publication records, and have experience as consultants to corporations and government agencies.  A list of the current faculty and the course they teach is provided below.
