Message from the DirectorWhen talking to prospective students, they often ask me how the Queens MBA program differs from other MBA programs. I believe that the key differentiator of our program is our focus on you you as an effective leader, and you as a valuable and productive team member. In the Queens MBA program, you will experience a level of personalization that is far more extensive than that available in other programs. Working one-on-one with your Personal Development Coach, you will learn how to identify and capitalize on your strengths, taking them to levels you may never have imagined. Our team-based approach creates a learning environment that mirrors the workplace and provides great opportunities to develop and practise critical team and leadership skills while in the program. You will learn how to effectively build, manage or participate in high-performance teams. Queens MBA is a powerful, transformational experience, built around you, your strengths and your aspirations. I invite you to read more about our exceptional program. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
