ESMT Berlin, Master's in Management candidate

The fact that the program was still in its early stages is what drew me to the MIM program. I always believed that I could also grow along with the course, facing newer challenges everyday, both academic and personal. The city of Berlin offers the best services to internationals and ever since I have arrived here, I knew I had made the right choice. Since I am from India, the cultural transition was not as smooth as I expected, but with time I realised that the facilities and the opportunities that this city offers is why I coveted Germany so much.

The Executive MBA at ESMT was a moment of truth for my personal life and professional career. During that challenging but rewarding time, I learnt a lot about industry trends and practices as well as the importance of cultural differences in a partly-globalized-partly-fragmented world. Moreover, I was able to strengthen and deepen my international network. Finally and most importantly, I understood how to get closer to my Ikigai, a wonderful Japanese concept meaning “a reason for being alive” and standing in the intersection amongst passion, mission, vocation and profession.

Roland Korn

Architect (state council building, ESMT Berlin campus)

I was 31 years old when I received the order to design the building. We had a very good team with a mixture of young and old. It took three years until the building was finished. When it was discussed after reunification what should happen to the State Council building, I remember that Klaus Töpfer, the Federal Minister of Regional Planning, Building, and Urban Development, said that the building should remain. When the new Chancellery in Berlin was not yet completed, the interim use of the building by Chancellor Gerhard Schröder showed that the former State Council building could also work very well and meet modern needs – as it does now for ESMT. I am very happy that the building has been preserved, so beautifully and expertly restored, and rebuilt, and that it now serves science and teaching. It could also be a gift to the architecture of past architectural epochs to preserve the building for the future.

ESMT represents my career move from technology to business. The Masters in Management course's intensity and teaching methods helped me imbibe the core management principles organically. The internationality of the program only enhanced the learning experience further. After my graduation, I feel like I am ready to make the difference in the real world and bring innovation and excellence to the fore.

At the beginning of the Executive MBA, I was convinced that if I would graduate this MBA will be a door-opener for me. But I was not fully right. This program is even more an eye opener. It helped me grow in many different areas. 1. Enjoy diversity - this was maybe the most powerful learning of all 2. Listening is more powerful then endlessly talking 3. asking questions is the key to success 4. Think about all the impacts a decision you take will have

ESMT Executive MBA program is simply a fantastic blend of the finest academic business cases, real-life rich experiences, and incredible culture diversification. I consider this educational endeavor as a significant investment into building new leadership skills and strong bonds with highly motivated peers. First I was hesitant to do the EMBA; I knew it would not be easy for me as a woman and a mother of two to go back to school and regularly fly for a period of 18 months. I confess that the first few months were extremely tough. But the support of my family, the EMBA program office members, and the wonderful participants helped make a difficult time and situation very bearable. Now I feel so happy and proud to be part of this program. It is all in all an enriching incomparable experience :)

The two days at ESMT were just great. Step by step the blockchain world unfolded and during interactive sessions, breaks and evening activities, we were able to draft plans which now – only five months later – have led to concrete new projects.

Sven O. Müller, E.ON

PGD Diploma Leadership and Social Responsibility

What experience at ESMT has supported you most in your growing in your leadership role? The status of a person’s personal development and career is always an important reason to participate in a specific course and also affects what he or she gets out of it. For me, Finance for the Non-finance Executive prepared me for a new role at my company. Many of the leadership programs at ESMT have aided me in overcoming hurdles in my personal development, but I have gotten the most out of the negotiations programs because negotiations are everywhere. What have you taken back to the job from your participation in ESMT executive education? The classes at ESMT have helped me to develop a broader perspective. On the job, I have had an intercultural experience, moving from Germany to Sweden and then back to Germany. ESMT has also supported intercultural exchange through cultural and industry diversity in the classroom. What on piece of leadership advice would you give to those just starting out in their (management) career? Relax a little. Continue to be passionate but also be patient regarding your career. It may simply be the wrong time, so do no put too much pressure on yourself.

The year at ESMT is one of the best things that ever happened to me. It has been a game changer in both my career and life. The year is intense, so it is up to you to balance and prioritize: You can learn enough, a lot, or everything. Some professors were awesome, while others were ‘only’ great. But the learning came both from faculty and my classmates.

About ESMT Berlin

Kristen Herde

Founder and CEO, YeaHR!, Executive MBA Class of 2007-2009

The ESMT Executive MBA helps you ask the right questions. You learn to build strategies that are driven by what your organization needs. I chose ESMT because of the school’s strong relationships with its founding and sponsoring companies. The leaders of major global organizations are regular visitors to the classroom. You are able to share in their knowledge and insight. You also have an incredible level of access to professors and peers. I was able to build relationships that I still maintain to this day. It is this refreshing openness that truly sets ESMT apart.
