CIMBA - MBA in Italy

Your development as a manager and a leader is at the heart of the CIMBA program. The CIMBA personal development process recognizes that managerial and leadership skills can only be developed through meaningful continuous practice, experimentation and feedback in an environment supported by experienced development professionals who work with you one-on-one.

In contrast to an analyst's career, your career as a manager requires:

  • stronger soft skills
  • more decision-making as opposed to task-oriented projects
  • significant supervisory, planning, and coordination responsibilities

The development of these soft skills is a demanding journey of self-discovery that cannot be accomplished effectively if confined to a classroom. CIMBA assists you in this journey by integrating learning opportunities that develop these soft skills into every class, activity, and project in the program.
