S3 Asia MBA students start their first semester in Shanghai, spend their semester in Seoul and finish the last semester in Singapore. In each of these semesters, S3 Asia students are treated as full-time MBA students, allowing them to have immediate access to all the resources of the three universities. In addition, students also share classes with full-time MBA students from the three universities, thus immersing them into the MBA culture of all.
