The Next MBA builds a community of top executives from leading companies around the world, who embark on a transformative learning experience together.

The Next MBA is a B2B executive MBA, targeted at seasoned executives, co-designed and operated by vanguard companies, concerned with top-notch leadership development.

The Next MBA is a multi-company programme for executives, nominated by their own organisation, who have already completed in-house leadership programmes. This ensures the quality of the classroom, which is limited to 25 participants to secure valuable interaction.

With world-class faculty, selected for their academic credentials combined with their personal executive experience, the learning experience takes place over 18 months on 6 continents. Our collective ambition is to create a powerful ecosystem of leaders for tomorrow, expose them beyond the sole borders of their current company and jobs, and prepare them for their next step.
