Pertti Saarela, CEO, Finnish Red Cross First Aid
I have worked in management positions during my whole career. The Hanken EMBA programme is a perfect fit for persons in managerial positions wishing to gain more self-confidence and leadership skills. The programme gives you insights about processes and tools needed in any business settings ensuring the next step in your career. Without his EMBA programme I would not be in my current position right now.
Pertti participates in the EMBA programme 2016-2018.
Rasmus Roiha, Managing Director, Finnish Software Entrepreneurs Association
My studies were interrupted several times so I never got my Master's Degree in Economics. I found myself slightly bothered by this ten years later on. Work commitments and a small baby at home meant that I could not study full time, therefore I concluded that a part-time EMBA could be the solution for me. The Hanken Executive MBA proved to be the right choice for me because of its international reach and network of experienced professionals.
Rashmi Kasat-Majakorpi, Head of Digital Program Management, Metso
When I joined Hanken EMBA program, I came here with an aspiration that I´m going to become a better business leader. I never for a moment thought that it is going to have such a powerful impact on my entire life. It has been a life-changing EMBA program, I fully recommend it!
Rashmi participated in the EMBA programme 2014-2015.
Kaisa Kekki, Sustainability Manager, Skanska
Having a background in engineering, I felt a formal education in business, finance in particular, would benefit my career. This was something I felt an EMBA would provide - which turned out to be very true. I was also at a point in my career where I wanted to challenge myself and at the same time deepen my knowledge in a variety of topics ranging from strategic leadership to marketing.
Natalia Goldberg, CEO Russia, Forenom
Completing the EMBA programme was a valuable investment in my career development. For me, Hanken Executive MBA was a natural choice since the Scandinavian market is the main focus area of my job in St Petersburg.
