Flex MBA | The Merage School Experience

The Merage School Experience Unmatched, high-touch graduate business school programs.

Our focus on leadership development in a digitally driven world is unique from other MBA programs. The Merage School methodology relies on an intense team-oriented experience to enhance your leadership skills.

  • Every student is assigned to a small cross-functional study team of 4-6 members.
  • You will work with your same study team intensely throughout the core curriculum.
  • The leadership role is shared among the team, with members providing unique contributions.
  • The team’s network of support helps you explore and develop your own leadership style.
  • Teams are created with industry, functional & cultural diversity in mind, giving every team a chance to work with individuals with a unique background.

Survey results from a recent graduating class prove the effectiveness of our method:

While only 25–30 percent of our students entered the program in managerial roles, more than 75 percent exit the program holding supervisory or leadership positions.

The following are just a few of the major companies where our alumni have risen to leadership positions: Allergan, Amazon, Boeing, Coca-Cola, Deloitte, Disney, E! Entertainment, Edwards Life Sciences/Johnson & Johnson, Experian, Ingram Micro, PIMCO, Qualcomm, Mattel, Taco Bell, eV3.
