In order to create a stimulating learning environment and provide a solid basis for a diverse and efficient future network among graduates, the programme seeks to enroll a group of students with a variety of professional and academic backgrounds. 

The Executive MBA classes are comprised of around 25-30 students with various academic and professional backgrounds who both can contribute to and benefit from the programme through its unique experience of group synergy.

Qualified managers from various industries, institutions and countries are potential programme candidates.

No strict age limit is set for admission, however, the programme targets potential students who have at least five years of managerial experience.

We are accepting applications for the Executive MBA programme on a rolling basis.
