Personalized MBA in Management: new model makes students protagonists of learning process
FGV Executive Education has just launched a new Personalized MBA in Management in Sao Paulo. It is an innovative program – the first of its kind in the world – in which students are the protagonists of their learning process. With the aid of a career development consultant, the participants select their entire curriculum from around 360 subjects that make up FGV’s executive education courses.
The great innovation is that during the course, students have the opportunity to study subjects in multiple areas of knowledge, without being restricted to a single MBA course. In this way, besides acquiring a variety of skills, they have the opportunity to study with different groups and to network.
The idea is to produce qualified professionals in many areas, who can tackle multiple challenges. The model stands out for its flexibility, helping to promote the development of people and their competencies. Another distinctive advantage of the model is that it lets people begin their studies at any time of year.
“It’s a new kind of learning experience. Unlike the curricula of conventional courses that must be taken in a certain order, this program is intended to balance market skills with students’ personal aspirations. As this method gives students autonomy, they all design their learning path based on their own schedules, needs, starting point and the objective they want to achieve. These learning paths provide support to students, who are the protagonists of their education,” says the director of FGV Executive Education’s Sao Paulo center, Professor Paulo Mattos de Lemos.
The course therefore adopts the model called learning paths. This is an alternative to traditional training curricula, offering a wider variety of resources to learn knowledge. In addition, students can have experiences related to various areas in a short time, absorbing content in a practical and easy-to-apply way.
The course is also taken in a personalized way. Students can do the whole course in less than the average 18-month duration of a conventional MBA. They can study different subjects at the same time. Finally, another advantage of this innovative model is the opportunity to network and have a different routine. Participants study in different groups of students, with varying profiles, expanding their networking opportunities and learning in a more dynamic way, as they have new classmates and new classroom discussions with each module.
