Studying in 5 Countries. Start of the Third Class of Global Executive MBA Program of HHL and EADA

15.10.2014

Start of the third class of the Global Executive MBA Program (GEMBA) offered by German HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management and Spanish Escuela de Alta Dirección (EADA) with students from eight countries.

The third class of the Global Executive MBA Program (GEMBA) offered by German HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management and Spanish Escuela de Alta Dirección (EADA) has started with 15 students from eight countries. Each student in this diverse group of outstanding and highly motivated executives has more than ten years of professional experience in fields such as IT, e-commerce, logistics, medicine and finance.

The average age of the participants is 37. The part-time Executive MBA Program, which started with a focus on leadership and strategy in Barcelona in late September, is taught entirely in English. It focuses on the peculiarities of business practices in the western European countries (with a special emphasis on Germany and Spain). In addition, participants gain insight into the economies and cultures of the Chinese, Brazilian and Indian markets. The program is accredited by ACQUIN, an agency operating under the license of the German Accreditation Council. 9

Management skills for the development of the European market

Mercè Piñol del Olmo, who works as European Sales Manager at the US chemical company Balchem Corporation, decided to complete the GEMBA due to its international reputation, the dual MBA degrees from German HHL and Spanish EADA, the excellent professors and the so-called neuro coaching to support students on a professional and personal level.

The 31- year old, who comes from a technological background, holds a Bachelor in Chemistry and can look back on seven years of experience in sales. She would like to expand her knowledge and skills in the fields of business administration and management. She wants to use the knowledge she obtained during her U.S. employer's expansion of the European market. "I am excited about the various teaching methods at the GEMBA schools as well as the learning atmosphere with classmates from different countries, industries and business fields," says the student from Spain.

Executive Coaching addresses the students' personal and professional aspects

To kick off the introductory week, the new GEMBA students experienced a typical Catalan dinner in Barcelona. The "Employee and Team Leadership" course then provided the participants with the first insight into Executive Coaching. Regular individual coaching takes place throughout the entire 21-month term of the program with a focus on personal as well as professional aspects for each participant. They are designed to further develop key skills such as communication, negotiation, conflict and diversity as well as intercultural management abilities which are essential for international leadership positions.

The students of the third GEMBA class can test their leadership talent not only by completing an outdoor training program but also by visiting the so-called Neuro Coaching Lab at a special training facility outside Barcelona. Under the direction of Steven Poelmans, Professor of People Management and Director of the Coaching Competency Center at EADA, the international managers have learned, through practical exercises accompanied by video recordings and brain scans, to be honest with themselves. All participants have a personal coach providing individual support, based on their personal 'lab report', until they graduate from the GEMBA program.

The Global Executive MBA Program of HHL and EADA

The Global Executive MBA Program of German HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management and Spanish Escuela de Alta Dirección y Administración (EADA) focuses on the development of leadership skills and teaches about intercultural competence and the economic peculiarities of management in Southern and Northern Europe as well as Brazil, China and India. The program, which uses English as the classroom language, is designed especially for executives who have obtained significant professional experience but have not studied business administration.

The structure of the 21-month Executive Program has been adapted to the professional and personal needs of international managers. For the Executive MBA double degree from HHL and EADA, participants must successfully complete eight six-day residential weeks on various management disciplines over the course of 21 months and write a Master thesis. The Global Executive MBA program consists of six compulsory modules of which three must be completed in Germany and three in Spain. Another two of three electives have to be completed at renowned business schools in Brazil, China or India. In addition to teaching core competencies in economics, the development of key qualifications such as communication, negotiation, conflict and diversity management as well as intercultural management abilities which are essential for international leadership positions is a vital part of the program.

Admission requirements for the Global Executive MBA program are a first-level academic degree, a minimum of five years professional experience of which at least three years is in a leadership position, and an excellent command of English. The tuition fees, including course material as well as room and board during the residential weeks, amount to EUR 43,000. http://www.hhl.de/gemba

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
