Top Part time Masters Degrees in Strategic Management in Africa. A word from the Academic Director "Being SMIB is not only a label that you get when joining the academic programme. It is a real mindset, attitude and way of living that will stick to you all along the years. I can assert this, not only as the appointed Academic Director of the programme, but also as a former SMIB myself. This would be the summary of this SMIB-spirit: business-oriented, open-minded, bold and authentic. Being open-minded is not an advertising catch phrase for the SMIB programme. We really live diversity in our daily life: when on campus, through the various nationalities represented in the programme; when on business trips; when at work, through the many chosen expatriation paths that SMIBs are in… So how do we do it? Simply because our focus is on excellence, in whatever we do. And to be excellent, one needs emotional, cultural, theoretical and practical intelligence. So if you are not fully convinced, read on!"
