      Sholpan Karibayeva

      Studying on the Executive MBA program helped me create a working strategy for developing my own network of clinics. And most importantly, I received exactly those tools and knowledge, thanks to which we will be able to implement this strategy. Now I have a complete understanding of how we can strengthen business processes and what is needed for this. I sincerely recommend this program to colleagues.

        Dmitriy Gubin

        The first thing I would like to note is the network, because people that study in the group come from different industries and everyone’s company is at different levels of development. Everyone shares their cases, how a certain process works for everyone, or vice versa. Networking is also great not only with classmates, but with teachers too, who are professors of practice and in fact share their experience, not read-through examples. The second is the program's orientation towards practice, where you study and immediately take your problem and start to analyze it, and the teachers give feedback and new modern mechanics that you have not encountered before, and this works great, as you can look from the outside.
