One-week DBiME program
This is a comprehensive five-day program at AUC that exposes participants to the academic and corporate perspectives of current issues in the region. The program is offered internationally to MBA and executive MBA students from business schools in different parts of the world that seek the first-hand experience of this complex, diversified, and promising region. The program is designed by the AUC School of Business MBA programs and managed by the Executive Education unit.
Two-week DBiME program
This is an extended version of the one-week program. New York University's Stern School of Business was impressed with the one-week program and asked to have it extended to two weeks for their MBA students. Accordingly, this program was designed and topics and deliverables were agreed upon. It will be offered to Stern’s MBA students as a credit course. Due to the current political situation in Egypt, it will be offered in January 2013. An expected group of a minimum of 20 MBA students from Stern will attend this program. In return, Stern gave AUC the option of allowing AUC MBA students to attend courses at Stern with a maximum of 12 credit hours.
