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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
