The Tor Vergata EMBA is the first Executive Master in Business Administration sponsored by a public university: the University of Rome Tor Vergata.
The program is aimed at professionals with at least 10 years of work experience who are motivated to contribute to the growth of the competitiveness of the Italian System together with scholars and executives.
This is an ambitious challenge, especially at a time when EMBA programs are experiencing a decline in demand due to a decrease in budget allowances for training and a gradual distancing between the offer of EMBA programs—many of which are of a “formative” nature—, and the needs of businesses and professionals, which are more focused on “development”.
From this analysis, we see the three main aspects of the Tor Vergata EMBA program that differentiate it from others on the market today. This program aims to:
- Transform one’s actions—not only understanding what a company should do, but also implementing it;
- Break down barriers to entry;
- Follow the participants individually along their path to development
The customer promise of the organizers is to create for each participant “an experience that will lead to the transformation of one’s professional action into a new kind of executive ability.”
The transformation of a professional into a successful executive, according to the organizers, goes through several fundamental aspects such as the speed of understanding and of action; entrepreneurship—which leads one to identify with the goals, values and achievements of their organization; and resilience—meaning the ability to know how to confront events and ethics in a positive manner—understood not only on a personal level, but also and primarily as a driver of action, as the winning element in business.
The MCE Research Centre oversees the modules concerning business ethics, a field in which it has acquired important experience over the years.
The first edition took place between October 2014 and February 2016, and the sessions were structured in such a way to offer innovative teaching, providing skills as well as knowledge (know-how, know-why, know-what), and innovative coaching so as to support each participant individually in this transformation from knowledge into action in order to be able to grow, learn, and change the way of seeing and approaching business.
