Program Overview

TRIUM provides students with a transformational learning environment and access to a remarkable group of global business leaders, allowing them the opportunity to develop personal and professional connections that last a lifetime.

The TRIUM Global EMBA program launched in 2001

TRIUM foundations

TRIUM was founded in 2001, when visionaries at three institutions – the HEC Paris, the NYU Stern School of Business, and the London School of Economics – realized that the next generations of global business leaders would need to have special breadth of understanding in order to navigate the newly “flat” world that seemed to be emerging.

The TRIUM program was born with the founding insight that globalization was not a topic of research and discussion but a lens through which business and society would need to be viewed.

This required a new curriculum that was not just a compilation of courses already offered by each institution, but a set of integrated, carefully curated courses designed for a whole new kind of Global EMBA.

The second innovation that TRIUM introduced was to develop a blended learning model shaped around the needs of senior executives: to incorporate intensive in-person modules in global locations, with assignments and group tasks designed for remote working in between.

The program has evolved over time to ensure relevant and insightful content. Module locations have shifted. The mix of courses has changed to accommodate new areas of business, technology and opportunity. But the fundamentals of the TRIUM promise have consistently been reasserted by the leaders of the three alliance schools. TRIUM is for the most senior global executives. The program’s vision is founded on a profound belief in the role of business in promoting global prosperity, dialogue, and social betterment.

As well as specially curated academic content from TRIUM’s expert Faculty, students and alumni also have access to special guest speaker events where they can join leaders from the region as they share their unique industry experiences and insights. Students will also have the opportunity to make the most of their global module locations by visiting local companies and attending events at special local venues.

Program format

TRIUM uses an executive-friendly, blended learning format (in-person classroom time and independent study between modules) comprising 6 on-site modules at multiple global locations over an 18-month period. Time out of the office is only 10 weeks.

There are 500+ live classroom hours taught in English. Between modules students complete between 15-20 hours per week of independent study which includes pre-and post-module reading, assignments, case studies, groupwork and the final strategic global Capstone Project.

The program journey

Business and social leadership today requires perspectives that go far beyond traditional MBA education. As a program we are dedicated to providing you with the tools you need for the C-Suite. Beyond that, we will engage you in the kind of intellectual activity that will inform your strategic thinking, for the future of your organization, and for your own development.

Our learning experience will be organized around collaboration and discussion. We are dedicated to providing you with world-class professors, leading thinkers and access to resources and materials supported by the expertise of three of the top providers of management education in the world. These tools will provide you with the insights to ask the right questions in a world of uncertainty informed by changes in the geostrategic, digital, entrepreneurial, and global environment.

We continually innovate the TRIUM program, so each year is set up slightly differently. The following courses are a sample of what you’ll cover in your time with TRIUM.

Franck Juhel

France Class of 2018

TRIUM is not simply a global executive MBA by content, it is also by location and physical geography. Participating in modules that were delivered in key cities and countries relevant for that particular focus was inordinately valuable. Learning about Asian financial markets while attending NYU Shanghai, or entrepreneurship and technology from Silicon Valley, adds a depth to comprehension and insight that can’t be gained from being in a single faculty in another part of the world for the duration of a program. This style of learning is invaluable.
