Executive MBA programme
Develop your capabilities to manage strategic and operational realities.
The programme aims to develop your business acumen, whether you are a central purchaser, part of the management team at an institution or a purchase coordinator. By developing a business-like overall view, buyers can make better daily purchasing decisions. Within educational institutions, resources can thereby be made available for research and education within existing cost budget frameworks.
Overall, the programme includes six full days, delivered over four months. The teaching is a well-balanced mix of lectures, with skilled practitioners and researchers from GU and other universities, as well as case descriptions and reflections, individually and in groups. Each day on the programme, the group gathers between 08.30 and 16.30 at the School of Business, Economics and Law in Gothenburg. The programme has been designed by the University of Gothenburg’s central purchasing staff, led by Eva Nordlund, in collaboration with GU Executive Education.
Mette facilitates different aspects of learning coupled to personal and professional development, for individuals as well as for groups.
