"The Global Executive MBA program is a combination of study, self-development, selfrecognitionand networking. The methodology helped me to integrate the knowledgewe learned into my personal and professional life. After each module of the program, I realised that I had gained insight that allowed me to face old problems as newchallenges. I especially enjoyed the time spent with classmates – all executives withextensive experience in various sectors and with one and the same target: to developand to grow. The GEMBA program has changed my perceptions of business itself andgiven me insight to myself as a manager."

Olga Pantchenko (Russia)  Global EMBA alumna 2012
Co-Founder and CEO of NORFOLK Sarl

"The reason why I chose to do the Global Executive MBA with EADA – HHL was the focus on entrepreneurship. This was essential for me, as I run my own business. The program covers the topics needed to manage a company successfully, and provides an overview of financial and accounting tools, logistics processes and evaluation methods. Another important focus is leadership, which does not always come naturally and requires a keen understanding of one’s own capabilities and the team’s needs. Overall, the Global EMBA helped me to develop my analytical skills, to recognise the complexity of diverse processes and to express my emotions. At the end of the day, these skills are what drive every business."
