The classical MBA program originated in the early 20th century in the United States where there was a growing need to educate general purpose managers, to empower them with a scientific approach to all aspects of their work-routine. One of the first and still most prominent MBA programs today (every year in the top 10 in the USA) is from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business founded in 1920.
From then on, the MBA portfolio of skills included: a good knowledge of business operations, an excellent quantitative methodology, a proficiency in human resource management, an understanding of microeconomics and macroeconomics, a comprehension of the legal and ethical aspects of management, the principles of business communication and leadership, a propensity for sustainable development and ethical business practices, and a apprehension of risk management.
This formed the core of the MBA education in the 20th century. Today’s world readily accepts this legacy and holds it in high regard, but the challenges today, are ever more technological. This is what eLeadership MBA can offer: a strong classical MBA education from renowned American Professors from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business augmented with a hands-on technological component, and the Algebra University College, whose professors have a strong background both in management and ICT, is the natural place for such interdisciplinary MBA study. From these expertise, the eLeadership MBA was born.
