With the advent of the Internet and advancements in technology, schools have realised the importance of online education. In order to cater to working professionals, who donâ??t have the time to attend a full-time MBA programme, many schools have started offering online programmes.

Online MBA is an excellent option for working students: you can pursue an MBA and take up specialisations such as finance, marketing, international business, etc.

â??One important benefit and difference between an ordinary MBA and an online MBA is the asynchronous sessions. When you have the time, you follow the forums and appear for the exams. Also, the opportunity to review classes and discussions several times is extremely valuable. This is the only way for many managers to do an MBA, and of course valuable for participants in different time zones. The challenge is to â??virtuallyâ?? put your personality, skills and knowledge, and network across. Also you need more cross-cultural and social skills in order to succeed on the Internet; words are more apparent when written online,â? says Sara Sjogren, a Swedish student pursuing an online MBA at IE Business School.

An online MBA is mostly attractive to people with financial constraints, commitments to work or family, or the lack of access to higher education. The most obvious advantage of an online degree is the flexibility to study and learn whenever you want.

You are not time bound and can fit the online schedules in your working life. â??Again one main benefit and reason for me to choose this programme is flexibility. I work as a manager and am trying to pursue my business ideas as well. I also have domestic responsibilities. So this is the only way I can manage an MBA,â? adds Sjogren.

Boao Forum For Asia: International Capital Conference in London

2008年6月3日至5日2008博鳌亚洲论坛(Boao Forum for Asia):“绿色亚洲(Green Asia)在亚洲之外的第一个资本峰会在伦敦召开,IE商学院荣幸成为应邀参加该峰会的单位之一。照片是伦敦峰会现场。

在论坛之后召开的新闻发布会上,IE也受新浪(Sina)财经频道委托,与中国中央电视台(CCTV)新华社(Xinhua News Agency),凤凰卫视(Phoenix TV)第一财经日报(China Business News)等多家国内知名媒体一起采访了论坛秘书长龙永图先生(Secretary General, Boao Forum for Asia)
这次会议阵容非常强大,英国政府那边出席的演讲嘉宾有伦敦金融城市长(The Lord Mayor of the City of London),英国总检察长(Advocate General),英国贸易投资总署首席执行官等等,知名跨国公司的演讲者则包括了黑石集团高级董事总经理, 高盛国际联席首席执行官,普华永道AIM创业板市场负责人,麦肯锡等等。
中国方面论坛秘书长龙永图的号召力自然是不言而喻,这里还特别想说一下我国驻英国大使傅莹在峰会晚宴上的演讲—–出人意料地亲切和有趣,可以说集西方式的幽默和东方式的含蓄为一身。当晚傅大使上身着银色挖领修身洋装,配象牙白珍珠项链和耳环,下着黑色及膝大摆裙,配上1米65左右的身高,和保养颇好的身材,温文尔雅的言谈举止,非常尊贵大方。她的演讲完全没有长篇大论,而是引用一个个发生在今年一系列大事件中的小故事小画面,包括了她私人的感受。比如,为了突出中西方要“持续沟通和相互了解”的重要性,她对奥运火炬在伦敦遭遇的“滑铁泸”轻描淡写,却讲述了她个人在英国和中国民众间听到的令人吃惊的近乎相同的态度和疑问—–两国民众都觉得因为不被理解而倍感受伤。又比如,在讲述四川地震中中国人民互助互爱充满凝聚力的赈灾故事中,傅大使几乎没有讲任何溢美之词,只是告诉现场,这说明中国人民是和所有西方人民一样有血有肉,热爱美好生活的人民,中国人和任何普通西方社会的民众一样内心深处都渴望有个温暖殷实的家庭。非常朴实的话语,没有任何大的形容词,温婉的仪态,几乎在每次停顿之后都报以浅浅的笑,也喜欢在演讲中用一些有趣的比喻来说明她的观点,非常具有感染力。
