Whether you feel like you’ve reached a plateau in your current position, decided to change the focus or direction of your career, or are looking for ways to expand your professional skills to open up new opportunities, earning your Global Executive Master of Business Administration (GEMBA) can be a great way to change your life for the better in 2019.

A Global Executive MBA can prepare executives to succeed in senior management positions at dynamic, international companies, or to start or expand their own businesses on a global scale. Read on to find out how a Global Executive MBA from WU Executive Academy can change your life.

An Executive MBA degree can take your career to the next level

An Executive MBA degree can give you a solid foundation in the business skills needed to succeed in challenging senior leadership roles. Students gain a broad base of knowledge in leadership, data analysis and decision making, macroeconomics, supply chain management, entrepreneurial strategy, conflict management and more, preparing them to oversee the many varied aspects of running a large corporation or starting their own business.

This can be a big advantage when applying for new positions, seeking advancement within your current organization or starting your own business. A Global Executive MBA shows employers that you’re willing to put in the time and dedication to better yourself professionally, gives you the skills to excel in the positions you take on and can even unlock new opportunities through your network of students and alumni.

Unlock international opportunities by studying at a global program

To gain the full advantage of an executive MBA in today’s highly interconnected global markets, it’s important to study at an international school that can give you a deep understanding of the complexities of global business. This means gaining experience with different business cultures around the world, developing a professional network that crosses borders and studying a curriculum with a focus on international business. With WU Executive Academy’s Global Executive Master of Business Administration, students can receive all of these benefits, opening new opportunities across the world.

The advantages of getting your GEMBA at WU Executive Academy

It’s never too late to go back to school, and with WU Executive Academy’s GEMBA Program, executives don’t have to put their career on hold while they do it. Over the course of a sixteen-month part-time schedule, students only need to take forty days off their jobs in order to attend international residencies in Hong Kong, New York, Minneapolis and either Rio de Janeiro or Buenos Aires. During these residencies, students will have the opportunity to learn about economies in transition, managing globalization, global strategies and innovation and more.

Thanks to WU’s partnership with the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota, students of WU Executive Academy’s GEMBA Program also receive two MBAs, one in Europe and one in the USA, and benefit from membership in two leading alumni networks.

Students benefit from both schools’ excellent faculties, including some of the finest business minds in the world and leading academics in current business research, published regularly in the foremost international journals.

Because of these factors and more, WU Executive Academy placed among the Financial Times’ top fifty Executive MBA programs in the world.
