Executive MBA (Online)
The OBS Executive MBA stresses the strategic, international and innovative vision of business management
The transformations occurring in the world today require a thorough analysis of new competitive scenarios and the application of new business models. The growing, complex volatility of global economies and their unquestionable interdependence colours our environment with uncertainty and ambiguity.
In this context, professionals must react quickly to change and make decisions according to the new needs of the company, and also think about creating value for stakeholders in the company.
The OBS Executive MBA stresses the strategic, international and innovative vision of business management, meaning that anyone responsible for a business, or a department thereof, must have a holistic view of the company, understanding that any strategic decision must be in line with the company’s strategy and be implemented in an innovative way.

Business Plan/Business Game
The Doing Business workshops cover specific aspects of how to do business and providing services in several regions worldwide. They will focus on the economic and cultural peculiarities of each society, their cultures and subcultures and their influence on trade relations. The workshops will also cover issues related to business protocols and etiquette, as well as discuss how to do business in those regions.
Specific topics covered are regional trading blocs, the advantages and challenges of doing business in such countries, guidance for investors and entrepreneurs, case studies, etc. The workshops will be conducted in Spanish or English.
Meetings with Managers
Above and beyond the case studies for each of the subjects, and the experience of teachers, professionals and actual top-level managers, webinar meetings with top-level managers will be held throughout the programme. Via this platform the speakers share their entrepreneurial experience on innovation, change management and internationalisation. So far we have organised these meetings with directors of IBM, Google, Privalia, Interbrand, Warner Park and Inditex, among others. Merging business reality with a training environment, constantly reflecting on possibilities for improvement, results
in the best situation for students and speakers. This is learning from experience with the added challenge of transforming and improving the same experience.

Ability to adapt to working in teams with people from very diverse geographical, professional, academic and cultural origins.

As a result of the above skills, being flexible becomes easier, in order to adapt to change.
