“We are excited to introduce this innovative program designed in line with the world’s top Executive MBA’s such as Harvard and INSEAD Executive MBAs, allowing busy executives to achieve their career goals within a shorter period of time-5 weekends of in-class learning plus E-learning and completion in one year-at an affordable cost. Our exclusive partnership with the UWL has enabled ANC to reach out to many local graduates seeking advanced learning opportunities without having to travel overseas for high quality education.
The EMBA is another step forward as it could be delivered at any corporate entity in the country and regionally, says Dr. Punarjeeva Karunanayake, the Chief Executive Officer of ANC Education. “The executive learner is at the heart of this programme. The UWL EMBA curriculum and teaching design is the result of decades of research and experience delivering high impact management education through better integration of formal learning into the real world. This programme effectively bridges the gap between theory and practice by engaging the executive in a continuous process that encourages application and innovative thinking.
The executive’s own organisation and work context serves as the learning laboratory or field of experience. The programme is therefore designed to harmoniously blend into the executive learner’s work life and draws on their practical experience to build knowledge, skills and capability to be drivers of innovation and leaders of progressive change.” Says Dr. Suresh Gamlath, Dean of Business at the University of West London. Ranking among the top 50 universities in the UK today, the University of West London offers career-focused degree programs, and its reputation is stronger in many areas including business in terms of student satisfaction, career prospects, teaching standards, and industrial connections.
