During the Course

Typically, class days begin at 9:00 am and end at 5:00 pm, with one hour for lunch and 30-minute breaks in the morning and afternoon. Catered breakfasts, lunches and coffee and tea breaks are provided during each day of the program.

Most of our courses combine lecture, discussion and group activities, creating a dynamic learning environment. Come prepared to learn and exchange ideas with classmates from across industries and around the world.
