"The impact of completing the GXMBA was exactly what I hoped for: it made me a better manager. I have acquired tools enabling me to run the company with confidence in place of trial-and-error. “Let’s try this out” has been changed to “Let’s do THIS."
"When you start the GXMBA, the most immediate goal is boost your management career and increase your knowledge, so you go in ‘guns blazing’ ready to compete…What you quickly realize, is that your professional development is intrinsically linked to your personal growth, thus it is in listening and understanding your classmates that you will become a leader professionally."
"The GXMBA program is a complete eye-opener… I changed from the public to private sector, switched my career, moved countries of residence and gave up or improved most of my managerial and leadership habits."
