ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITY TO SPEND A WEEK IN ONE OF THE PRESTIGIOUS BUSINESS SCHOOLS ACROSS THE WORLD
Students and graduates of Kozminski University’s Executive MBA program have now the opportunity to take part in a residential week organized by one of the business schools within Executive MBA Consortium for Global Business Innovation.
This unique experience gives an intercultural context for the knowledge already gained and helps with creating a network of MBA students around the world. By learning from different markets, lecturers, classmates, companies, and cultures, senior executives can expand their experience and enrich their perspective.
The EMBA Consortium has been operating for more than 10 years and consists of 12 carefully selected business schools from around the world. These are:
- Bologna Business School, (Italy),
- The COPPEAD Graduate School of Business (Brasil),
- Cranfield School of Management (GB),
- The Chapman Graduate School of Business (USA),
- ESAN Business School (Peru),
- Keio Business School (Japan),
- Moscow International Higher Business School (Russia),
- Sabanci School of Management (Turkey),
- The Lucas Graduate School of Business (USA),
- The University of Stellenbosch Business School (South Africa),
- Kozminski University (Poland)
- Munich Business School (Germany)
Kozminski University joining the Consortium serves primarily to increase the managerial competence of our executive MBA students, who learn the secrets of international business with similar leaders at the best business schools in the world. Our participation in this elite group also serves to further internationalize our Executive MBA program. It already has a strong position in the "Financial Times" ranking. In 2020 it was ranked 63rd in the world, but we have the ambition to reach much higher. Currently, MBA students take part in a week-long exchange with our strategic partner ESCP Business School. Now there will be more such opportunities - explains Prof. Grzegorz Mazurek, Rector of KU.
We are looking forward to this exchange. We hope to welcome students from other countries here in Poland, and we are sure that our own students will benefit from going abroad to visit Partner Universities. The planned groups are small (3-4 people each), so that students can fully experience the local academic, scientific and business life. - says Sylwia Hałas-Dej, Director of Kozminski Executive Business School. - Through meetings with students and managers from other countries, discussions with academics and business practitioners from all over the world, KU's Executive MBA students can gain a truly global perspective which will be essential for economies returning to normal after last year's turmoil.
- residential weeks are planned at one time by all members of the EMBA Consortium;
- the exchange is carried out within the scope of the tuition fees paid at the home University; students cover only the travel and accommodation expenses;
- next exchange is planned for September 2021.
