Face-to-face Weeks

Context

The current challenges in business demand people to know about world referents, to develop how said referents lead their industries , to develop the necessary skills to make transformations happen, to reinforce self-knowledge that allows to face the ever changing coming with the future, to forge alliances in order to overcome complex challenges, and to acquire new competences, knowledge, and skills in the Tripple Bottom Line.

In order to respond to these needs with integrity, Westfield Business School includes face-to-face weeks in its program which allow its students to adequately face each structural challenge in the business world.

The methodology during the face-to-face weeks complements the technical training received through the online platform and allows our students to create value networks among themselves and with alumni from different cohorts, who can also take part of them.

Through the face-to-face weeks, Westfield Business Schools ratifies its international reach and character having a variety of alternatives guaranteeing a global formation at the disposal of its students.

Methodology

The design of the face-to-face weeks was made by top tier teachers at Westfield Business School and its allies  (Munich Business School, Vermont University, Prestige, among others).

Every face-to-face week was built under the three premises that differentiate our school:

Practicality: Case Studies Methodology

Decision-making processIt breaks mental patterns and allows to capitalize learning.

Integrality: It is a design connected to building wealth (Profit), developing talent (People), and looking after the planet (Planet). These weeks have a memorable, collective learning with cutting-edge frameworks, discussion of real-life cases, visits to companies, and building a collaborative network which can actually provoke in the students to connect their experience with what they have learned online, breaking patterns and mental frameworks under a global view.

The participants will take part in an active learning setting which will strive for the reflections generated during the program to have applicability in the reality of each student.
