WORK & STUDY: WHAT ARE THE POTENTIAL SYNERGIES?

 

Pursuing an MBA degree while working full-time is indeed a challenging yet rewarding experience. Doing both at the same time creates synergies. Our participants work full-time and go to class every second week, where they exchange ideas, acquire new competencies and learn new concepts which can then be immediately applied in their everyday work.
