Hult International Business School

Hult’s LEAP method gives you hands-on training through the involvement of Fortune 500 executives in selected MBA projects. Hult is a pioneer of action learning, integrating classroom teaching with real-life experience. Our curriculum is inspired by three key concepts: “Learn, Experience, Action Projects”—Hult’s LEAP method. This means not passively listening to lectures, but actually learning by doing; that is, applying the tools and concepts of MBA courses to real-world business situations. An integral part of our leap method is the Action Project, which gives you the chance to apply the skills you learned in the classroom and to work in a small team focused on solving a current business problem in a project designed in consultation with a Fortune 500 executive. As an Executive MBA student, there is also the possibility of working on an action project created in partnership with your current employer, meaning a “win win” situation for you and your company.

Our world leading faculty possesses real-world business experience Our global faculty has outstanding academic credentials as well as reallife experience running and managing successful businesses. For example, Dr. Patrick Courtin, Professor of Negotiations, has been the CEO of several successful high-tech companies and serves on the board of major enterprises; Dr. Hitendra Patel, chairman of Hult’s Innovation and Growth Action Learning Program, has worked at Motorola and the Monitor Group, founded venture-backed companies, and registered six patents.

These rankings recognize our uniquely international focus, the quality of our program and faculty, and our exceptional student body and alumni network. Our students ability to find employment and increase their earning power, as well as the diversity of the industries they enter after completion, are key factors represented in these rankings.
