“I chose the EMBA program in Busines & IT because I wanted to get a 360-degree view on business-administration aspects on C-level. The academic background of well-known experts allowed us to discuss and review strategic decisions, and to find the right balance between demand and supply in use cases. The expert talks of current and former C-level executives gave me the chance to get deep insights into the subject and learn about the people behind the role.”Sascha Wirtz (Participant Executive MBA in Business & IT),
