The Invited MBA is sponsored by companies that value access to the Invited MBA network of accomplished professionals. The Saturday team competitions will be held at sponsoring company headquarters. Company recruiters will not receive any information about you that you do not specifically allow them to see.

The Invited MBA utilizes Abilitie’s award-winning curriculum which has been used at organizations and universities such as GE, Marriott, Southwest Airlines, MIT, the University of Texas McCombs School of Business, and additional renowned universities around the globe, including campuses in Lausanne (IMD), Dubai, Shanghai, and London (Hult International Business School), and Mauritius (African Leadership University).
