The business simulation with the mix of diverse methods and media - MARGA Blended Learning
As a management training programme, MARGA Blended Learning uses the dynamism of the management simulation and combines the advantages of an in-class seminar with the strengths of an online competition. Its key advantages can be found in its combination of diverse learning formats and media: In both two-day in-class modules, current management knowledge is dealt with and developed within the context of personal dialogue. The participants consolidate these interrelationships in an exciting management seminar competition and apply them in specific management decision-making situations - interlocked in terms of their content through the integrated ESMT Online Courses, individual online feedback as well as further literature.
Active support of the teams
The MARGA management team actively supports the teams via web-conference, e-mail and telephone during the self-directed learning phase. This phase extends over a two months 'on-the-job' period and through the continual application of the management instruments, creates incomparably sustainable learning success.
