ESMT Berlin welcomes 65 students with 32 different nationalities to Full-time MBA Class of 2017

The 65 students in the latest Full-time MBA class began the program at ESMT Berlin today. The candidates have 32 different nationalities and come from countries such as Brazil, El Salvador, Georgia, India, Mexico, Philippines, South Korea, Ukraine, United States, and Venezuela. On average, the students are 30 years old and have more than six years of work experience.

ESMT has awarded four Kofi Annan Fellowships in this intake to students coming from Armenia, Cameroon, Pakistan, and Zimbabwe. In the context of its 125th anniversary, Allianz SE provided funding for these full scholarships. This support allows the Kofi Annan Fellows to study at an international business school together with a diverse group of students from around the world. The fellows are from least developed countries and are expected to contribute to their regional economies when returning to their home countries.

The ESMT Full-time MBA program develops global responsible leaders by immersing students in a comprehensive curriculum with two specializations: managing innovation and technology and global sustainable business. ESMT expedites personal learning and development through small classes; international exchange programs such as the Global Network Weeks of the Global Network for Advanced Management (GNAM), a group of top business schools from around the world, spearheaded by Yale School of Management; MasterClasses with CEOs from multi-national corporations; and real-life consulting projects.
