On Sunday, October 2, EADA and HHL celebrated the intake of the fifth batch of the Global Executive MBA program. The 15 new students represent the most diverse class ever, coming from North & South America, Europe, Middle East and Asia. For the first time, Eada and HHL are also welcoming students from Iran, Afghanistan or Saudi-Arabia on their campus.
The global perspective of the program does not only result from the program design and diverse nationalities, it much more lies within every individual. Having been born and raised in different countries, working abroad, being multilingual is to some extent part of every participant’s profile. So while being different, participants discover a lot of similarities at the same time.
“I met a lot of great people”, says Henning Nelles, a German participant. He chose the program in order to work with people from different nations and to have time for self-reflection and observation which perfectly aligns with the leadership focus of the program.
During the first week of the program, the development of leadership competencies starts right away with the NeuroTraining Lab and the first course of the Leadership module. Challenging outdoor activities allow for an experiential learning approach and are meant to form the group into a cohesive team. The secluded setting of the training center in Collbato offers ideal conditions for the activities and to make the group come together to get to know each other closely.
