VISION ON LEARNING
Business and society are the common threads running through our programs, and are integrated into all modules. To that end, we have designed a TIAS Business and Society Competency Framework. This framework consists of four competency areas, which you will encounter repeatedly throughout the program: Responsible Leadership, Collaboration, Business Modeling and Sustainable Innovation.
As tomorrow's leader, it is the combination of these four elements that will allow you to transform your business and create an impact.
