Welcome back, Executive MBA alumni!

May 22nd, 2015

Some 50 Executive MBA alumni, current participants and guests joined the Executive MBA alumni event yesterday. This year, we had the honour to have invited Jan Svensson and Dr. Rick Middel as our guest speakers. Jan Svensson is Group CEO of Investment AB Latour since 2003. He shared with us Latour’s successful experience in value creation in the past 12 years from 2003 to 2015, through a long-term focus on change within Latour’s portfolio companies. Dr. Rick Middel, innovation researcher at the School of Business, Economics and Law, equipped us with some tools to be innovative to create values in business models.

Over a glass of bubble, the Executive MBA alumni and participants connected with each other. After the inspirational talk and sharing by Jan and Rick, the evening continued over a networking dinner.

The Executive MBA Programme Office organises a variety of events to bring alumni together and to expand the Executive MBA Alumni Network. The next event will be a networking evening with international Executive MBA participants from Chinese University of Hong Kong.
