In May 2015, Alfred Brush Ford, the great-grandson of legendary Henry Ford, the founder of the Ford Motor Company, has accepted to serve as the Honorary Chancellor of the Alfred Ford School of Management, in Durbuy, Belgium and has inaugurated the world’s first Conscious Leadership MBA program offered by the school, unique for its holistic approach to worldwide business practices and the combination of ancient wisdom with the latest developments in teaching business and management. As the Honorary Chancellor, Mr. Ford, himself a pioneer of conscious leadership, offers support to the school and provides advice in areas such as ethical leadership and social responsibility.
In a recent statement, Mr. Ford applauds the highly qualified faculty of the Alfred Ford School of Management, especially trained and experienced in applying conscious leadership skills to core business areas, as well as the school’s small intake of students and high selectivity process, assuring utmost personal attention and an environment conducive to high quality exchanges.
The mode of program delivery is according to the up to date study standards: ten modules (included dissertation) are delivered online and the last module in Conscious Leadership is onsite one week residence in Belgium. Each module is having video lectures using new Polimedia technology (video screencast with the tutor’s presence) with weekly case study materials. That will offer the students complete educational experience.
The Alfred Ford MBA degree is offered in exclusive partnership with the Universidad Católica de Murcia (UCAM) in Spain, a university famous for its excellence in educational achievements, high ethical standards and outstanding sports performance. UCAM partners with Stanford and UC Berkeley and is the educational body of the Spanish LFP (Professional Football League).
Alfred Ford MBA is also in the process of accreditation at ACBSP – Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, one of four leading specialized accreditation association for business education.
