At the European School of Management and Technology (ESMT), the Berlin-based institution of higher learning focuses on continuing its push to become one of the areas to funnel freshly minted MBA’s into the international business world. Part of that approach is organic, with an estimated 90 percent of the students that populate classes coming from countries other than Germany.
That allows for frequent interaction with a more diverse audience, one of the hallmarks of international business. Such a philosophy has been in place since the school first opened its doors in 2002, with MBA’s earned by both those attending ESMT full-time and those taking part in the Executive MBA program.
Class sizes are small to allow for more interaction between students, while also forging a more fluid relationship between instructors and students. During the course of a year, students can embrace entrepreneurship and also take part in concepts that prize innovative approaches within technology.
The networking opportunities are wide for ESMT graduates, given the fact that alumni from the school can be found in 40 different countries around the world. That growing list of connections helps explain why the school continues to rise in rankings of international MBA programs.
