 sesja aneta szymanskaDear candidates,
 
our MBA program is realized in English 100%, whereas most MBA programs, especially the ones in the Lower Silesia region are held fully or partially in Polish language. This fact adds a real value to our program and gives dimension of uniqueness and elitism. That is why our MBA program is also suitable for foreigners - its international aspect gives it a competitive edge. Almost half of our students come from abroad, bringing along with them a completely fresh and different look at some business problems.

MBA at WSH in Wroclaw allowed me to confront myself with other professionals and to be constantly challenged

katarzyna trzos skurska

Doing an MBA has been one of my dream since I started my initial studies. We decided to choose the program together with my husband and we reviewed each offer of such education available locally. International MBA in WSH definitely took the cake!

MBA at WSH in Wroclaw allowed me to confront myself with other professionals and to be constantly challenged. Not only implemented jointly with prestigious HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management from which the professor's staff came to the classes but also, I could work on case studies and to share experience with the group of top professionals from different sectors.

This allowed me to identify my strengths and weaknesses and to become more aware of my abilities. I started the studies with the position of Project Manager in IT sector and very quickly the knowledge I gained during weekend programs enabled me to build better relationship with our customers and internal teams and my project has been awarded for its efficiency. I could not believe it is possible to learn and to implement on daily basis so many new things in such a short time. I had to make a break in my career as beginning of second year in WSH coincided in time with an enormous change in my personal life as I became a mother.

Here again WSH offered me a great support and I could complete the program on time, while doing second year remotely. I will come back to work well-armed with business and managerial competences, which I do believe will offer me new challenges and great opportunities.

It was really an added value to my professional career

joseph s naguib

It was 2 years full of knowledgeable, fruitful & rich experience.. Honestly i liked the fact of exchanging experience & ideas on different levels during our sessions. Approaching my mid-senior managerial level with such an experience gathered from academic study like MBA & practical daily life experience from lecturers and colleagues, i acquired a deep knowledge about the business trends nowadays. Also, the international environment in the classroom creates a warm atmosphere to exchange knowledge and experience in different parts of the planet.

The International MBA program allowed me to systematize my knowledge and to deepen it

alina niewelt

The International MBA program allowed me to systematize my knowledge and to deepen it. As a result, I was able to relate to it more freely and naturally in business practice situations. The combination of business experience with the knowledge acquired in the International MBA Program gave me the opportunity to make more accurate decisions in my everyday work. However, the International MBA Program is not only the knowledge and experience I gained from the lecturers, but above all it is people from many industries, with a lot of experience and willingness to cooperate - it is simply a great opportunity to develop yourself in a pleasant atmosphere.
