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.
