At the end of the course, after many curricular units, the challenge was overcome and the objectives were fully achieved: today I am a person with a broader vision in different fields of management, but also more resilient and prepared to face future challenges, as a result, not only of the contents provided in the Executive MBA programme, but also of the numerous group works, focused on real problems, of the coaching programme and of sharing experiences with colleagues and teachers, all with different backgrounds.
