Doing an MBA or any other postgraduate degree is about enhancing your academic skills to prepare you better for future professional challenges. No doubt about it. But is that everything?
Some students might feel there is nothing to add but certainly – I hope – they are the minority. Such a degree is much more than that: it’s a journey, a bath in diversity, a mosaic of professional, personal, cultural, entrepreneurial experiences. Getting challenged with different perspectives in every moment of the program and LEARN from it. It opens your horizons, brings you out of your comfort zones and you enjoy it, can’t get enough…
Another important part of this “bath” is FUN! That is what the participants of this year Global Village had… watch, enjoy and if you wish to be part of it soon, let us know!

Aleksandra, current student of the Master in International Management, talks about her experiences during the Master.
Hi Aleksandra! Start off by telling us about yourself…
Hello! My name is Aleksandra! I’m a girl from Cleveland, USA, with Serbian blood, heart, and soul. I did my Bachelor degree in International Business at the University of Akron, USA, and now I am in beautiful Madrid pursuing my passion in international business and management. I first fell in love with Spain when I lived for a summer in Sevilla (southern Spain, in Andalusia). Having that daily magical influence of exquisite Arab architecture, centuries upon centuries of Roman, Jewish, and Moorish history at every step, and the daily siesta coma that apparently comes with the arrival stamp in your passport, the Spanish summer heat just ignited my passion for this land. Did I mention that I also love the culture, language, and zeal for life here in Spain?!
Great stuff, do you have an interesting fact or story to share with us?
I started learning Arabic during my last semester of university! I loved it… but haven’t done it since. It’s such a beautiful language to write!
What are the kinds of things you admire in a person?
I admire people who “dare to be themselves in the face of adversity. Choosing right over wrong, ethics over convenience, and truth over popularity….. Since these are the choices that measure your life” (author unknown).
