  • 4. Pilkington Ratiu Business School is about international management education of the highest quality: the knowledge, attitudes, values and skills that foster professionalism, social engagement, prosperity and excellence in leadership. Pilkington Ratiu Business School is a tribute to the lives of Ion and Elisabeth Ratiu (née Pilkington), successful international, for-profit and social entrepreneurs. PRBS puts a strong emphasis on demonstrated excellence, academic ability and leadership potential. Our international faculty, representing top business schools such as Harvard, INSEAD, IMD, Cranfield and Ashridge, is committed to delivering a unique teaching/learning experience. A rich and rewarding life usually combines varied platforms and interests. Our model of management education applies to all management arenas - public, private and social. When our lives are richly involved in many different aspects of society, our commitments feed off and complement each other, creating valuable synergy. We aim to provide first-rate international management education for future business, NGO and public sector leaders wishing to work in the region. PRBS will contribute significantly to the area’s economic development, prosperity and civic engagement, as well as the consolidation of democracy. Business activity has proven to be more effective than donor-aid programs alone in stimulating development and enriching the quality of life. why PRBSwhy PRBSwhy PRBS Looking at the bigger picture A unique learning experience Shaping the future Adding value to education Pilkington Ratiu Business School 5
  • 5. Keen to play your own special role in the world? Pilkington Ratiu Business School is the place to acquire the higher education you need to become a part of the future. Through our programs and unique teaching/ learning environment, students absorb a real understanding of the key functional areas of management activity, while developing the attitudes, values, skills and broader vision needed in today’s real world. All courses require a high level of both individual and group-based preparation for every session (readings, internet research, case studies and project preparation). PRBS uses a variety of teaching methods, including the case method of teaching pioneered by Harvard Business School, project work, simulations, field trips, and the completion of a thesis. MBA Program The PRBS MBA program is the opportunity to experience a world of different background, cultures, beliefs and talents. Sharing, learning, achieving and applying ... all in just ten months of intensive work, while forging friends for a lifetime. 10 months, 18 modules, 12 professors ... a lifetime experience The MBA curriculum is designed for rapid learning and preparing students for international business careers. This aim is reflected in the ten-month, com- pressed time-frame, by focusing on study five days a week and avoiding ‘down-time’. PRBS also offers a range of subjects that have only recently entered MBA curricula: corporate gover- nance, corporate social responsibility, cross-cultural understanding, ethics and, above all, sustainability - subjects of vital importance for future leaders.

Treat the program as the launching pad to your future. The Fellowship Program curriculum consists of eighteen two-day weekend modules. A candidate who opts to take every module will be able to complete the program in less than one year. Others may decide to spread their course of study over a longer period, up to a maximum of three full years. flexible-duration, international environment ... boosting your future knowledge, attitude, professionalism, social engagement The format of each weekend combines business with pleasure in a timetable that allows freedom and flexibilty for individual preferences as well as informal private discussions with fellow guests and faculty. Sessions are participative, combining work- shops, lectures, round-tables, case-studies and debates.
