“On behalf of the I would like to say how pleased we are with this mix of people. We are embarking on an amazing journey together,” says Tony Åkesson, Director Executive MBA at EFL. He continues, “Many months have been spent in preparation, so naturally it feels great to get started.”

During Micro Bachelor, the introductory four-day residency session, the participants will create a company simulation as a shared basis for continued learning. This first session is devoted mainly to getting the participants familiar with each other and the challenges from their businesses that they are bringing to the program.
“These business challenges are important because the participants, facilitated by our EMBA team, will be helping one another learn. Our philosophy is based extensively upon cocreation of knowledge among the participants, who help set the agenda. We will draw on the wealth of varied experience of this group to leverage the participants’ learning and development,” says Tony Åkesson.

An adventure packed with more than 18 months of development and learning is in store for the EMBA participants from now until graduation on March 2, 2019.
