How do the sessions compare to graduate-level MBA courses?

2021-08-04T21:04:06+00:00

Graduate-level MBA courses have homework with intense reading requirements. You typically prepare for class by reading case studies and preparing answers that pertain to those case studies. The classes at MBA courses last much longer, and are more challenging to remain engaged with, as each class is held by the same instructor for periods of 8 weeks at the time. TLI sessions are not lectures as they are meant to be fast paced and interactive. Each presentation last 30 minutes and is followed by a Q&A session.

We close the session with interactions/dynamics meant to allow participants to get to know their peers. Orientation is mandatory.
