Unique Insights from World Leaders

A quite astonishing and unique aspect of the Dūcere MBA is the Global Faculty of World Leaders. Dūcere have assembled an esteemed array of over 270 presidents, prime ministers, Nobel Prize winners, government ministers, entrepreneurs, scientists, academics, and the CEOs of some of the world’s largest companies to share their experience and insights with Dūcere students. This is no small achievement! Can you think of any other university that has come close to attracting input from so many respected public figures?

The Global Leaders Faculty is an asset shared and valued by Dūcere Business School and the Dūcere Foundation. The GLF came about through a group of exceptional minds who have excelled in their fields, generously giving time and support, to further the charitable cause of the Dūcere Foundation. Dūcere found that many industry leaders were wanting to participate in something that could support and promote the foundation. From there they began to participate in the education project as well. The Dūcere foundation does important work in a number of countries in Africa, building peace centres, schools and publishing houses.

At Dūcere we are focused on the union of education and philanthropic activities. Our charitable works are fully funded by proceeds generated by from the business courses we deliver.

Insights from the Global Leaders Faculty are integrated into the research and learning materials in our courses. In our MBA, while we believe is that it is absolutely crucial to be supported by our world-class academics in undertaking your Masters’ program, we also believe that in order to fully understand the business concepts that we are endeavouring to teach, it is hugely beneficial for students to hear from the most successful people in the world.

In order to take on academic theories, it is advantageous for the student to see theories be applied in a real-world context and demonstrated successfully. In the Dūcere MBA we break up your course offering and identify the key business concepts. We then find the most successful people worldwide achieving that business concept already, and garner their insights.

We do this through high quality production video interviews and case studies, which are then integrated into the course offerings and made available to you to the MBA portal.

The Global Leaders Faculty is a unique offering which is consistent throughout our Ducere courses, is completely proprietary and not accessible to any other business.

Dūcere programs have enabled children to change their lives and seek a brighter future, thanks the generosity of these world leaders. When you study your MBA with Dūcere Business School, you are not only receiving the most innovative business education the world currently has to offer. You are also contributing to peace, education and economic empowerment in underprivileged African nations.

An insight into the wealth of information on offer from our Global Leaders’ Faculty.

Big Faculty

How do you coordinate people without direct authority over them?

There’s one cardinal rule of coordination, which is, everybody thinks coordination is a good idea, but nobody wants to be coordinated. So you have to persuade everyone that coordination is not only a good idea; that it actually delivers real benefits in reality. The key thing is that if you put the people at the centre to what you are trying to do, then you all come together and try to make it happen. The leadership element of coordination is really difficult, because you have to exercise leadership, but at the same time, you don’t have power and authority over people so you have to exercise leadership through influencing. It’s probably the hardest thing to do, but it’s also quite an exciting thing to be able to do, to be able to demonstrate that you really can do it and bring people together and get them to face in the same direction.
