Participants’ impressions of Experience E/MBA program:

“Participating in the Experience E/MBA program definitely empowered me to enroll the program as soon as possible. Today, two years after completing the EMBA program, I am confident that my contribution to the company has significantly increased. The diversity in team work with interesting and often inspiring individuals has strengthened my ability to adapt quickly and creatively, which is especially important in the context of the constant deficit of available time and the pressure of everyday work and other obligations.”

MIROSLAV BOŽIĆ, Executive Board Advisor, Viro Group

Apart from the top lecturers that discuss current topics, I could feel the interaction among the group, the exchange of ideas and experiences with other participants that come from different industries. This program has enriched me.”

Excellent professors, challenging modules and a lot of interesting classmates from different industries were an invitation to join. Executive MBA program fulfilled all of my expectations.”

Topic: MEGATRENDS / How the future can unfold

In this fast-changing business environment, one’s success depends on how well they prepare for the future. While business leaders of the past looked in the side view mirror to predict the road ahead, we must now look at the greater forces affecting the social, business and economic world today – megatrends.

The DRIVE framework examines five interrelated megatrends: demographic and social changes; resource scarcity; inequalities; volatility, complexity and scale; and enterprising dynamics. Individually, each of the 5 aspects of the DRIVE tool are considered provocative, however, together they have an impact on how successfully companies can identify new business opportunities.

Participants will engage in identifying new business opportunities through an understanding of business, economic, social and political changes.
