Alumni of MBA in Global Management

Bahaar Rizvi, India:

"The MBA in Global Management program gives equal credence to all matters related to an international corporate environment. Whether it's Logistics, Marketing, Finance, Tax, Law or HR, there is something for everyone.  This particular aspect is very enriching for a student who would like to work in a global environment. The professors are highly experienced and can definitely guide the student in the right direction. If I give my example, I already had some experience in the field of Tax however, through the program I learnt some other aspects of International Taxation (e.g. Transfer Pricing and Permanent Establishment), which I not only applied towards my Master Thesis but also towards my job search. This yielded incredible results because I was able to secure a much desired tax related role immediately after completing the MBA. Overall, I can say that acquiring this MBA has been very beneficial to me and I would like to thank IGC for it."

Olsa Rumbullaku,

"The MBA in Global Management-program enabled me to start an international career. In our program the professors came from different countries and industries. The team-work during the course developed my communication skills and I learned a lot about cultural differences from my class mates. Through this Master program I found the job which I always dreamed of. Now I work for an international company in the automotive industry.”

Guido Schwartz,

"The MBA in Global Management provides a modern management education in an international environment. Students gain cross-cultural competence in multinational teams in Germany, thus building up sustainable management capabilities. This is a perfect preparation to act successfully in different arrears of today’s international business life. Now I work for an international company in the aviation industry.”

Thunlawan Likithatamanit,

"I chose the "Master in Global Management" for its renowned reputation. It was an exceptional multicultural experience."

Rabi Royappa Williams,

"Students from all over the world work together and learn to cooperate and optimise solutions. Here I realised that global management and its intercultural awareness did not only improve my business performance, but was an invaluable enrichment of my life. I learnt how to conduct business in an unknown environment with partners from many different countries and cultures and I now feel that I am prepared and able to do my best as part of a multinational team around on the globe."

Pascaline Dubray,

"The course work in the MBA in Global Management-program requires the willingness and ability to understand that your views and approaches cannot claim to be universal. Case-study discussions teach you that there is a need for differentiation."

Nuria Rodriguez Macho,

"During the lectures we were able to communicate with each other because the MBA in Global Management-program is ruled by limiting the class-sizes. There are twenty to thirty students in one group. Nobody remains anonymous or can avoid co-operating and personal involvement. We got to know each other very quickly. It simply happened in this atmosphere."

Carol Beigneux,

"I like the teaching methods employed by the program. They were both serious and playful, team-work and individual assignments, presentations and defence of elaborated positions, joint research, open discourse, case-study analysis, and brainstorming. I did not miss anything. Learning is neither boring nor torturing - it is enjoyable to learn with people who all share the same attitude."

Daniel Herce Galan,

"If you need support and assistance there is an organisation called ISA (International Students Association of BUAS). Their obligations and efforts do not only start after your arrival but also prepare you by giving you general information and individual correspondence in advance. I never felt lost because of the availability of the ISA-tutors."

Jing He,

"The campus is like the world's melting pot. Therefore learning does not only take place in class, it happens everywhere. You cannot avoid learning and having new experiences every moment even if you are not the curious type."

Jan Konturis,

"The best thing about studying here is being able to see the world from a close perspective. My fellow students, professors and the caring staff constituted a multicultural cosmopolitan environment. The diversity in its approach to learning provides the best support for a global management function."
