At the Executive MBA programme of the School of Business, Economics and Law, already established managers continue their development. One success factor is mixed groups where people with different backgrounds create a group dynamic.
Julia Lamskemper from Germany is one of the participants. Since October 2011, she has been commuting to Gothenburg and the School to become an even better business woman. The participants of the Executive MBA programme have an average of ten years’ experience of work in senior positions. However, there is a wide range in the group since they come from different countries and organisational cultures.
"Discussing matters with the others and hearing what they do in their organisations is extremely interesting. Everyone has different approaches and I constantly see new perspectives and get new ideas."
Education with an international outlook
The lecturers have different nationalities and backgrounds and the Executive MBA programme also includes some travel. During the second term, the group went to Shanghai and Hangzhou and visited both universities and companies. During the final term it was time for a ten-day-long trip to India with a visit to the Indian Institute of Management in Bangalore among others.
