Hanken EMBA Participants

Who are we looking for?

Each new group of Executive MBA participants is carefully selected by the Dean of Executive Education on suggestion by the EMBA Director. Our aim is to select a heterogeneous group of people as experience has shown that a more diverse group increases in-group learning. A higher level of diversity broadens the bases for discussions and increases the variety of perspectives.

Hence, we look for managers and other top talents that are highly motivated to challenge themselves and to share their experience.
