Executive MBA 2015-2017 kicked off on 1st October!

November 3rd, 2015

Executive MBA 2015-2017 kicked off on 1st October with some 20 high-calibre ambitious executives. The inauguration day began with orientation delivered by the Programme Director, Roger Schweizer, then followed by an ice-breaking session. Each participant had a few minutes to present himself / herself. Very soon after the presentations, a sense of supportive and constructive atomsphere was created. Almost all participants said “I aim for high-pass” and “my learning objective is to contribute as much as I can”. Indeed, this Executive MBA programme is not only a “knowledge” programme, but it also provides a platform for networking, sharing and self-development. An open-mind, supportive and positive attitude is well needed in this 21-month journey, which I have already felt that on day 1!

This Executive MBA programme is a 21-month programme conducted in English. In collaboration with our partner university, Zhejiang University, the participants will go to China in April 2016 to learn about doing business in China and supply chain management while the module about creative leadership will take place at our partner university, Indian Institute of Management Bangalore, in January 2017.
