Students Testimonials

 

 

“Each module is carefully thought out considering the scope of issues and problems we deal with in organizations. It is very insightful to learn factual theories and practices related to organizational issues and prepare a knowledge bank for myself while looking for solutions in the real world. The lecturers have multiple years of management experience so they can relate and guide us more pragmatically than purely academic professors.”

Trupti Kavathekar, Human Resources Professional

 

“The Study Program offers advanced methods to explore the state of organizations and unlock the hidden dynamics of the psychology of change, fundamental aspects in the age of acceleration. Those methods help me becoming an expert of the change and ultimately finding ad-hoc interventions to unleash individual and organizational potentials as people leader in the short term and as business coach in the future.”

Evangelista De Luca, Leader Budget and Headcount Planning

 

“I really enjoy the practice-orientated examples the lecturers tend to share. I am able to make a comparison with my Bachelor’s degree that had more theoretical orientation and was delivered mainly by academics. As a whole, it helped me to develop critical and scientific thinking and now I am happy acquiring another degree with a different perspective that is exclusively relevant to my current profession and more practice-orientated.”
