New Wave of Talented Professionals Enroll in AUBG’s EMBA Program

On Jan 6, 2013 AUBG welcomed twenty-three professionals, who enrolled in the Executive MBA program. They come from a wide range of economic spheres, such as IT, telecommunications, manufacturing, media and banking.

Most of the students hold mid-level managerial positions in Vivacom, bTV Media Group, DSK Bank, Kraft Foods Bulgaria, Postbank, C3i Europe, Lufthansa, Technik AG and other Bulgarian and international companies while some of them run their own business.

Seventy-eight percent of EMBA students have six to ten years of professional experience. The average age of the January 2013 cohort of students is 32 years.

AUBG awarded a partial scholarship to an applicant with an exceptional score on the GMAT exam while around half of EMBA candidates receive partial or full funding from their employers.

Over four semesters, running from January to April, EMBA candidates will enhance their knowledge in a variety of subjects, such as business communication and ethics, managerial economics, marketing, corporate finance, HR management, and organizational behavior.

Weekend classes allow professionals to complete their studies without disrupting their careers. Outstanding faculty and business practitioners provide the hands-on practical experience that students need in order to develop the knowledge, skills and analytical tools to position them at higher levels of responsibilities.At the Orientation Day the new students experienced their first team building, got their textbooks and study materials, and learnt how to better navigate and benefit from the computer and learning resources that AUBG and Panitza Library offer.

Two days later Provost Steven Sullivan, Prof. Lucia Miree, Dean of Faculty, and Prof. Miroslav Mateev, EMBA Director, officially welcomed Cohort ‘12 at a reception in the Elieff Center for Education and Culture in Sofia. The new students could meet with their faculty and network with the previous cohort students.
