About the program

The economy in Central and Eastern Europe has progressed dramatically in recent years. The former state-controlled industries have largely been replaced by modern, hi-tech, advanced businesses throughout the region. In some cases the rate of technological progress has outstripped the capacity of support systems to provide the necessary infrastructure to enable these businesses to achieve their potential. To be a successful manager in this environment can be due as much to art as to basic knowledge.

The Antwerp Management School EMBA, delivered with the support of IBS, in Moscow aims to develop such managers. The Antwerp Management School EMBA in Moscow is a mirror image of the EMBA delivered in Antwerp. It is designed to support experienced and globally oriented managers to be truly successful in their careers in an international environment and within the regional context. Whilst participants usually begin the program with a relatively deep but narrow field of experience (engineering, law, economics, finance…) during the program they study the range of management disciplines to make them capable of successfully holding general management or chief executive positions in international focused businesses.

Trips & global residenties

Participants of the EMBA Moscow edition further develop their global perspective and build an international network through working with EMBA students from the host institutions during 3 one-week global residencies:

  • Sun-Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou, China
  • MIT in Boston, U.S.A.
  • AMS in Antwerp, Belgium

On these study trips local challenges are investigated from an economic, geopolitical, cultural and environmental point of view. The residencies include lectures, company visits and debates with business leaders and local experts. This helps participants understand diverse international business situations and trends whilst exploring new intercultural competence knowledge through working in culturally diverse teams and organizations.
