“The Executive MBA is the best combination for personal growth and the development of management skills. It has made me overhaul my business methods, my management style, and my company understanding. Above all, it has changedmy perspective of the world.”

“For me, a physical challenge such as 30 of trail running in Mont Blanc is a metaphor for life. One minute you feel invincible and the next minute you are struggling to breathe. Determination is what makes the difference the desire to move forward and finish the event. I think any activity should be performed with this passion, whether it's running or participating in the Executive MBA.”
