ESMT Master Class & Admissions Event in MadridWhen: Tuesday, 9 June at 19:30 Where: Offices of GMATclasses.es and mbaSpain C/ Velazquez, 119, 2A RSVP: email@example.com
7:00pm- 7:30pm: Arrival and registration
7:30pm- 8:00pm: Introduction to ESMT MIM, MBA and EMBA programs
8:00pm- 9:00pm: Master Class by Matthew Bothner, Professor of Strategy at ESMT
9:00pm- 10:00pm: Cocktail reception
ESMT: an International Business School with Strong Corporate Support
The European School of Management and Technology is based in Berlin, Germany and was founded by 25 leading global companies and institutions. The school offers a full-time MBA, an executive MBA, a Master’s in Management and various executive education programs.
ESMT focuses on three main topics: leadership and social responsibility, European competitiveness, and the management of technology.
The ESMT MBA
The full-time MBA at ESMT is ranked #3 globally and #1 in Germany as well as #5 globally for student satisfaction in the Businessweek international school rankings for 2014.
It is a one-year MBA program taught entirely in English and with a very international environment (an average of 90% of students and 80% of program faculty from outside Germany).
The program begins in January and features classes of less than 65 students. There is a strong emphasis on leadership and soft-skills development throughout the program.
The ESMT MBA has a strong practical component and students use their strategic learning in a team-based seven-week applied fieldwork, usually with one of ESMT’s corporate partners or with an entrepreneurial venture. Popular sectors for projects are energy (particularly renewables), banking and insurance and high-tech entrepreneurship.
”I had a wonderful experience at ESMT, both at a personal level as well as from the academic point of view. The program is demanding and intense but you´ll learn some concepts that are very important for a potential career as manager…. Pursuing the ESMT MBA strengthened my CV and allowed me to change my career from technical positions to a more management oriented path. Studying a good MBA in Germany, the driving force of Europe, also helped me to consolidate my international career” Guillermo Hormaechea, ESMT MBA 2012
About Professor Matthew Bothner:
Matthew Bothner is an ESMT Full Professor and the Deutsche Telekom Chair in Leadership and HR Development. He is a dynamic speaker and thought leader who will present a unique perspective on leadership — Annealing: A Method for Leading in a Cloud of Uncertainty
When executives are deeply uncertain about the future, they often treat their employees like a sword-maker treats a sword. They “anneal” them. Annealing is the process of heating metal, glass—or an organization—and then cooling it in a better state. Outside the laboratory, annealing is a method for leading in a cloud of uncertainty. To anneal your employees is to “start a fire beneath them,” as a way of triggering varied, innovative responses—from which you, as a leader, then choose. Using an example from science fiction and a brief case, our focus will be on the strategic and ethical issues raised by annealing. The value you take from this session will be two-fold. First, when you are annealed in the future, you’ll be better prepared to capitalize on the experience, instead of being burned by it. Second, if, as a leader, you believe that it’s ethical to anneal your employees (a matter of debate), you’ll be keenly aware of its advantages and its dangers.
