Take a look inside!

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.
