I wanted to increase my ability to drive businesses and make them grow in a sustainable manner when facing dynamic international markets, high-paced technological development and political instability. The programme has provided me with a wide range of knowledge on the entire strategic decision-making process. All lectures are based on highly respected theoretical concepts and are enhanced by current schools of thought or trends. On top of regular lectures and case-work studies, guest lectures from practitioners are a refreshing and inspiring addition to ly learning experience.
