AUS is leading the charge in skills for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) through integrating the hard and soft skills our students will need to be competitive in the coming decades. Key learning methods to promote 4IR skills development are instilled in the program.
At AUS students from over 44 nationalities come together and share their personal and professional experiences guided by professors who work in their field of specialization.
Through experiential and student-centered learning students are exposed to real-life scenarios and case studies allowing them to develop skills needed to be competitive in the upcoming decades. This applied experience is in stark contrast to many university professors focused solely on theory or outdated methodologies.
The degree builds on a student’s knowledge developed at a bachelor level and will develop their business personality and hone their management skills. Students will study a range of core modules in which they will do an in-depth analysis of business practices in areas such as management, business law, and corporate strategy in an international context. Students will then dive further into their modules and learn the application of theory to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the impact their knowledge can have.
