An International Advantage
This emphasis on soft-skills development encourages CIMBA to take full advantage of being an international program. As an American MBA program residing in Italy, CIMBA creates a learning environment in which all students are "foreign." This unique environment provides a forum where in addition to learning core international business functions and management processes, students are able to develop leadership behavior skills at an accelerated pace. By being out of their comfort zone, students are more receptive to learning about themselves, being held accountable by others who are also learning about themselves, receiving developmental feedback from coaches, and learning to motivate others as they work in teams.
