What makes CEMBA unique?

Extreme flexibility in attendance

Premium networking potential
In every given year CEMBA participants can choose to attend selected MBA modules with up to 6 different E/MBA generations and over 300 executives from SE Europe. This is an amazing networking potential boosted further with over 2.400 MBA alumni and over 20.000 satisfied clients of the school.
Apply your learning directly to your workplace
During the CEMBA program, you will address current work challenges with your peers and lecturers and apply new learning directly in your workplace via the individual project*.

How is CEMBA structured?

Prior to the program, participants will assess their current trajectory and business priorities, as well as their management styles. Subsequent classroom and group work will be devoted to assessing the breakthrough potential of these priorities and developing approaches to make the breakthrough happen. Two dimensions are emphasized: strategic improvement and leadership improvements. These come together in each participant’s personal agenda and action plan.

*The individual project is an important learning vehicle in the CEMBA program and can be offered as a significant and real ‘pay back’ to participants organization. This gives participants the opportunity to work individually on a project, to analyse and resolve complex business problems using the business skills, frameworks, and tools acquired in the program.
