AVT Business School
Innovative Education for Business Leaders
AVT Business School is a recognized and international accredited MBA business school for professionals who aspire to make a greater impact and achieve the next level of success.
AVT is a learning community for driven executives who aspire to make a greater impact—in their own workplace and in their industry as a whole. Our students have the courage to broaden their horizons, be visionaries in their field, and prepare for fresh career challenges. While AVT attracts individuals of various ages, backgrounds, and life experiences, they are all united through a common objective: achieving that next tier of professional success.
At the core of AVT is an outstanding international faculty comprised of visiting professors who also teach at some of the world’s leading universities. These individuals have been selected based on their academic merits and illustrious business careers, as well as their ability to engage our executives in a truly interactive learning experience.
Today, AVT is one of the leading Scandinavian business schools for ambitious executives. With an international MBA accreditation by the Association of MBAs (AMBA), our institution joins an exclusive group of high-quality schools around the world.
- A groundbreaking, fully accredited global learning institution.
- Top faculty from elite American business schools.
- Intensive yet flexible education for the busy executive.
- Highly effective learning methods adapted from Harvard University.
- Opportunities for lifelong learning and networking.
- A focus on translating theory into practical action.
The AVT educational concept consists of two primary education modules: the CBA and the MBA. Both are real-world programs designed for busy professionals, combining proven teaching methods with an intensive pace to ensure maximum learning in minimal time.
More than 1,000 executives have completed the CBA and MBA programs at AVT since its inception, making AVT one of the largest CBA/MBA schools in Denmark.
The CBA (Certificate in Business Administration) at AVT Business School is an accelerated executive certificate program that covers the key topics and management disciplines of the MBA curriculum. The CBA is the first of the two modules that comprise the AVT educational concept and serves as a stepping stone to the MBA program.
Designed for motivated business managers who wish to refine and strengthen their leadership skills, the CBA helps participants enhance their theoretical knowledge and apply theory profitably to their current business challenges.
The CBA program lasts six months and starts twice a year – in August and January.
The MBA (Master of Business Administration) at AVT Business School is an intensive executive postgraduate degree. It is designed to expand the functional knowledge base of general managers as well as hone their ability to lead in an increasingly global business environment.
The MBA builds upon the successful completion of the CBA program and delves further into the key aspects of business – from strategy, leadership, and marketing to finance, operations management, and human resources. This is a 12-month program with three study days per month.
A High-Impact Learning Experience
The CBA and MBA programs are taught in small classes that support an interactive and effective learning environment. AVT has implemented the methods and recommendations of Harvard Business School with respect to Participant-Centered Learning and the Case Learning Method, which Harvard pioneered. Our instructors combine the proven Case Learning Method with stimulating lectures to provide optimal opportunities for learning.
All CBA and MBA classes are held at the exclusive AVT Business School at Sankt Annæ Plads, located in the culturally rich metropolis of Copenhagen.
Executive Education that Fits Your Life
At AVT, we understand that a balanced life makes an engaged and enthusiastic learner. That’s why our CBA program enables you to easily manage the demands of your studies, work, and family.
In addition to conveniently scheduled classes, our flexible programs allow you to complete the CBA and MBA curriculum at a pace that’s right for you. You may pursue the MBA immediately upon graduating from the CBA program, or you may delay entrance into the MBA program for up to three years following completion of the CBA.
The AVT educational concept gives you the opportunity to “learn while you live” and coordinate the development of your career with the knowledge you gain from our programs.
Lifelong Learning and Networking
AVT also offers several lifelong learning opportunities that enable our graduates to continually build their knowledge and keep abreast of the latest business concepts and strategies. Some are offered via our Alumni Business Network as one- or two-day Master Classes, and some – like the Mini-MBA program and Certified Executive Scholar – are available as open enrollment programs.
