Project management is a tool which gives you the chance to move your professional life toward important strategic objectives. It is a good management instrument for career development and professional self-realization. It is also a skill which can be learned as well as any other. The WU Executive Academy’s MBA Strategic Project Management program is providing a very practical, highly considered, flexible and team-focused educational approach to project management in business-oriented learning environment. As a student of the program, I’m improving my knowledge in the project management field, learning more about different methods and techniques for further practical application in various public and private projects. This program offers everything I need to succeed in my professional development.
Milena Prvulovic, MBA
The MBA Strategic Project Management allowed me to perfect my skills and more importantly hone the systemic approach to projects and daily work, invaluable skills throughout one’s career. The professors of the MBA offered not only knowledge but wealth of experience and precious practice pointers. Although it is a cliché often found in MBA overviews I was amazed with how the diversity of our class offered variety of views and approaches and eventually enriched all of us.
Maksym Lukianov, MBA
It was just actually about the right time for making an investment in my future career and also investing in this knowledge on how to organize this chaos around and in project management. These were the main reasons for attending the program and it definately paid off.
Alexander Hartner, MBA
The ever increasing importance of project and process management in corporations such as Raiffeisen-Leasing Austria was the trigger for me to go for more in-depth training in these areas. As market leader, we are faced with the challenge of successfully implementing international financing projects with severe cost and time restraints. In addition, we also strive for ongoing optimization of our key processes in the highvolume vehicle and equipment leasing business. Specialized education is absolutely necessary to master these challenges. This certainly made the case for me: With the support of my employer, I was attending the MBA Project Managementand, with our company motto ‘there is always room for improvement’ in mind, will apply the knowledge acquired in my typical work day.

During the MBA I not only enhanced my project management know-how and other knowledge that are relevant for any project-oriented organization but also worked on my personal business challenges for my master’s thesis. The program transforms your vision when the time comes to make the right decisions.
