The program curriculum is devised based on the best world practices and is constantly updated to meet the ever-changing requirements of the business world. The EMBA at AUBG gathers leading professionals from various industries who, during the sixteen-month (four-term) program study all integral subjects in Business Administration using case studies, preparing team projects and presentations and writing academic papers. The Program also features a Business Trip abroad that enables the students to learn from real-world business situations and practices at leading international companies.
“I wanted to have access to a broader business world from different industries and perspectives, in order to incorporate those in my business tool kit and enjoy a new experience in my life creating friendships and network,” said Teuta Sadiku from Pristina who works as a business process manager at Quipu GmbH. She said that her experience as a management professional for more than 10 years now taught her a lot, but she was missing the academic experience and the classroom learning among professors and classmates. “This would also align with my goals of the future, which is to have a broader knowledge business-wise and have my own business that would make a change in society.“
She chose the Executive program at AUBG to share experience with other professionals in the sphere but also because it was a good combination of educational factors. “As AUBG is located close to Kosovo where I live and work, it made it easier for me to attend a wonderful university that provides both the American and European approach into the business world," she said. "The fact that the EMBA program is recognized worldwide and is a highly selective one made me attracted to it.”
For Sadiku, the classroom dynamics are the strength of the AUBG EMBA program. "The study materials are carefully selected and contemporary, which makes us feel like being in the heart of business trends and innovations," she said. "The classmates are all professionals coming from a broad range of industries who contribute to lively classroom debates and an exceptional sharing experience. I enjoy it because it creates a community dedicated to empowering and inspiring each other. It gives you the possibility to find friendships but also build a powerful network for the future. I would highly recommend AUBG’s EMBA program to anyone who wants to upgrade their careers, learn new things from the most recent business trends and enjoy this experience with a diverse and wonderful community and network that stays for life. I am more than happy with the choice I have made, and I must say that AUBG has exceeded my expectations I had for the program and for the university in general. It is a wonderful experience, and it is indeed difficult to explain it in words."
Upon completing the AUBG EMBA Program, the alumni report a significant salary increase, being promoted at their workplace or starting their own successful businesses.
