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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
