What are the main strengths of TRIUM vs. traditional EMBAs?

TRIUM is the first truly global Executive MBA program. It was created by a unique alliance of 3 of the world’s leading universities:
HEC Paris, NYU Stern (New York University Stern School of Business) and LSE (London School of Economics and Political Science).

Participants benefit from the 3 schools’ faculty resources and, upon graduation, belong to the 3 schools’ alumni networks; a major asset in a business career.

Top-executives enrolling on the program need spend only 10 weeks away from the office to attend 2-week live classroom modules in Paris, New York and London, with a further 2 classes held in emerging countries selected each year. In each of the 5 host countries, TRIUM offers executives the chance to meet guest speakers including top ranking CEOs, professors and politicians. Some 500 supplementary hours of distance learning facilitate preparation and follow-up work on projects between modules.

TRIUM is also the only Executive MBA program that integrates international economic and sociopolitical modules into the business curriculum through the participation of LSE.
TRIUM can provide corporations with a valuable professional development opportunity for their top employees, help firms retain their most talented people and position companies for successful global business leadership and expansion.

What is more, TRIUM is always a significant personal experience for all participants, in terms of international exposure as well as approach to management.



What is the profile of TRIUM's 2nd intake?

Our second class of international senior executives consists of 35 entrants, 25% up on the first intake, due to a significantly higher number of applicants. 20 nationalities are represented this year, with no less than 12 countries of residency. 8 of these executives are women.

Among the various nationalities represented, 40% of the class are from the US, 35% from Europe and 25 % from the rest of the world (8% Asia-Pacific, 3% Africa, 8% Middle-East, 6% Latin America). 45% of participants are already expatriates. The average age is 39, demonstrating the high level of responsibility and experience required to gain access to TRIUM.
