Historically, business education was about knowledge – the acquiring of facts previously unknown to the learner.

Today, the knowledge that sets a business leader apart is the knowledge one cannot google.

Such a leader is truly FREE – a concept that the Stockholm School of Economics family puts at the very core of all of its programmes. F.R.E.E. acronym stands for Fact and Science Mindset, Reflection and growing greater Self-Awareness, Empathy and Cultural Literacy and being Entrepreneurial and Responsible.

The main Executive MBA advantage for me personally was gaining strategic thinking skills. To think more broadly and responsibly, to plan in the long term, to predict situations better than others.

Now that the lectures are over, I look back on them as a good vacation, one where being away from everyday activities allowed me to come up with fresh and innovative ideas for my business.
