Successful MBA graduates of the future will be lateral thinkers who employ a creative, abstract approach to solving business problems. That approach is at the very center of our iMBA curriculum philosophy. Every encounter an iMBA student has with our program will advance lateral thinking. To visually represent that approach, we have chosen to use a tangram, a Chinese puzzle composed of seven basic geometric shapes that can be arranged in many ways to form a single silhouette. Its simple, modern, abstract style has international recognition and appeal. But, most importantly, it has meaning that equates to each aspect of our program.
