If you ask me about the way my business has transformed, I’ll say that within 1,5-period of my studies at EMAS…
1. I opened a new subsidiary what I’d been planning to do (but never dared to do) for about 5 years.
2. I opened an online shop to sell auto spare parts what I hadn’t been considering before.
3. All my tasks have been completed on time – within the set deadlines and from the first try, with no procrastination, but with growing key performance indicators and decreasing expenditure.
4. I learnt to delegate tasks to my subordinates what helped me to make time for strategic planning.
5. I streamlined the working process so that my staff members could solve problems and deal with force-majeure themselves being motivated and result-oriented.
6. I learnt to analyze the current business situation and identify bottlenecks which impede development.
Perfume Logistic LLC
While studying at EMAS, I made it a regular practice to implement the solutions and technologies I was presented. Therefore, after 1,5 years of studies I could evaluate the results.
1. The company has a vision, a clear goal, and a working plan of strategic development for a 5-year period in 3 projections.
2. The company stakeholders have decided to make it a standalone business.
3. Within a 2-year period the logistics department has achieved a number of breakthrough goals and managed to join a group of leaders according to sl (% of ideal orders) as well as to reduce logistics costs by 15-20%.
4. The monthly income has increased by 1.5 (in USD equivalent) and is now among the best in the industry.
5. I have a perfect team that I share knowledge and skills with.
All way through my studies on the Executive MBA program at EMAS Business School I was happy about the quality content. But it wasn’t only about the knowledge - I also learnt how to implement a number of management tools and technologies. As I have been involved in strategic management for a certain period of time, it was important for me to get the basics of business education.
Owing to my studies, I made a decision to form a board of directors which is now responsible to manage the assets.
The final project was based on my start-up initiative which I considered to be a hobby rather than business. But the project reached a breakeven point within the first month :)
Business owner, Director
I have met new people, learnt a lot of new things which turned to be really practical. The information and knowledge I got at EMAS really help to plan, analyze and develop your business for the years ahead. It’s a crucial thing for me as currently when we go from crisis to crisis, an opportunity to analyze the situation and make projections is an equivalent to being a success in business. If you can’t evaluate the situation and make projections, you are bound to fail, make losses and even go out of business.
So, as they say, it’s never too late to learn. And if you come to study at EMAS Business School, you are sure to gain new knowledge, new partners and launch new business!
Sales Department Manager
The study process was guided by highly-qualified specialists and business trainers. All projects and tasks which we did at EMAS Business School were based on real practices of our companies. What is even more valuable is that EMAS students’ final projects present their companies’ development strategies for a 5-year period. It makes the study process really practical. As a result, both my colleagues and I have developed such an important competence as strategic vision.
Head of Regional Office
I have never regretted doing the program at EMAS Business School and putting into practice the tools and technologies which we were taught here. Right now I can easily formulate who I am, what I will do in the future and what my plans are for the coming year. It’s all about being positive! I set my mind only on positive things! If I have an opportunity, I will surely join EMAS programs in Belarus. Thank you!

Key Specialist Manager
What I can say about the school is that it is a wonderful place to study with gorgeous teachers and tutors who manage to touch upon all business and everyday life issues. I am confident that within the 2 years of studies I have grown both professionally and personally. I would like to recommend EMAS Business School as the best school in the sphere of business administration. And remember - if you want to change the world, you should start changing yourself!
Owing to my studies at EMAS Business School I have received a lot of practical tools which will prove - and have already proved - their value in business. I have only positive impressions about the program – both the group and the teachers were fantastic. I would offer everyone to take a course at EMAS Business School, it’s really worth it!
Technograd Plus SP
Now there are a lot of discussions going on in the sphere of business education: «Which school is better? What should this market be like in the future?» But it looks as if the market players forget about the key things that should be the priority. I mean the students’ interests which should come first. When choosing a business school, the most important selection criterion for me was the knowledge quality level. When it comes to EMAS Business School and its Executive MBA program, it has really met my expectations especially in terms of classes in strategic marketing and management. Therefore, I would recommend this program to those who are looking for quality knowledge and expertise!
"Volga-Trade" Company group
It took me quite a while to select a program. I studied various programs content, visited open days held by the leading business schools. The majority of those left a trace of disappointment because of their academism and kind of arrogance which could be felt in their attitude to students. Many of them attract clients by the names of eminent trainers but with a closer look one can see that they rarely teach at those schools. EMAS Business School promised the consulting approach to the study process. Еach module ended up with a project which we had to implement. It was challenging and time-consuming, yet, really useful. Even now, long after graduation, I get back to these projects.
To tell the truth, EMAS has transformed my attitude to business education. I used to doubt that a businessman with over 10 years of real business practice can benefit from business education. But now I am sure that it is really worth it. The key thing, though, is to select the program that will open new horizons for you. And I’m really grateful to EMAS for practical, intense, rich in content and interesting studies.
“OP NII PKD” LLC
I have completed Executive MBA program at EMAS Business School. I have received a lot of practical tools for improving my results and the company performance. So I do recommend you come here to study, especially if you happen to have some unsolved issues or experience business difficulties. You will get the knowledge you need and will be surprised with the results!
I had been working at my current workplace for 10 years when I realized that I’d got stuck and was not moving any further. I wasn’t sure what step to take, how to set priorities. So when I saw an opportunity to study, I went to EMAS Business School. I was attracted by the opportunity to communicate with colleagues, other top managers and business owners. The school helped me to set priorities, to formulate goals, to understand how to move forward and what direction to take. As a result, by the end of the program I was able to create the company strategy for the coming 5 years.
I can say that all program participants have managed to grow their business and make friends as we keep in touch and communicate on a regular basis – both in formal and informal environment. I’d recommend everyone to study as it does open new horizons and makes you more confident in view of the possible crisis. It makes you feel that you will be able to stay afloat, if not go ahead of the competition!
Legal Agency "Parity"
We have received a lot of new knowledge while studying at EMAS, and everything we learnt was really practical. All the tools we were presented by the trainers could be adapted to and applied in our own companies. As a result, we could use these models long after the program completion.
Apart from getting new knowledge and skills, we also had an opportunity to communicate as a group. It was really invaluable experience which we could get while learning from both teachers and fellow-students who have rich business and life experience… Therefore, I definitely recommend studying here.
Company Founder, Director
I graduated from Executive MBA program at EMAS Business School in 2015 and I have only positive impressions about studying here. Moreover, I have never regretted doing a course at EMAS. I got to know a lot of new interesting people and broadened my horizon. That’s my first experience in business education. And I’m really excited, thank you!
What I can say about the program is that it is really practical! All projects that we have to do while studying at EMAS are done on our companies’ data. And it gives an opportunity to implement projects even before the program is over.
In addition to the set of practical tools, at the end of the program we get the whole picture called “Company development strategy for the coming 5 years» with all the necessary aspects itemized. As for some other things to remember about the studies, it might be a lot of humor and other positive things.
Our company works on the pharmaceutical market. So I have benefited from communicating both with the students working on this market and those working in different spheres. It has added to the program practicality and variety. Offsite events organized by EMAS Business School are another thing to remember. They are memorable due to their unique friendly atmosphere and fantastic locations which I personally discovered for myself!
Head of the Sales Department
I work as the Head of the Sales Department at Bau-Holding, the pharmaceutical industry. I graduated from Executive MBA program at EMAS Business School in 2015 and would like to share my impressions how to combine such a challenging study process with one’s regular activities. Yet, I’ve gained a lot from it. First of all, I’ve reformulated my life goal making it continuous. I have realized where I am now and what I would like to achieve. One of the most crucial questions for me was whether I would like to become a business owner or remain an employed manager. And I have figured out the answer to this question.
I must admit that I have only positive impressions of the program. All the time, money and effort invested in it do pay off. All projects and tasks we were supposed to do were based on our company activities. So all the tools we were familiarized with were implemented straight away. That’s what I’m grateful for!
Head of ophthalmology clinic
The manager should have a good intuition, but it's a different thing when professional coaches help you to solve any professional problems. They accurately guide you in the river of volatile business processes, they help you to create a business plan for your treatment process and make your business successful. Therefore, it is one thing when we act intuitively, and another when it is supported by theoretical knowledge, when good practitioners are near, excellent theorists who carefully, tactfully guide you in the right direction, of course, such an approach must be successful.
For the treatment process to be successful so that it is for patient’s benefit, we need to know the commercial component and be able to build business processes.

That’s impressive that each of the participants showed such incredible personal growth in a such short period. There is no analogue to such project. It's really impressive. Another thing that pleasantly surprised me as an employee who studied at MBA program earlier in another school is that the program EMAS clearly differs by applied nature and it's not just words. You get knowledge, work it out during training and introduce it into concrete practical work and show results. I wish EMAS more successful projects with the same talented people as MBA students in EMAS from VDMC.
Beijing Automotive Group Co., Ltd.
I am a graduate of the Executive MBA program of EMAS Business School. I really liked the course. It was useful. There was a lot of practical knowledge and systematization of this knowledge that was very useful. Thank you for giving me this chance to study with you. I suggest all directors also get good knowledge and useful acquaintances in EMAS Business School.
The Volga District Medical Centre (VDMC)
Chief Medical Officer of Hospital №2
The first lessons were quite difficult because it was a new field for us, but I should say that we understood everything during the training and we began to master these skills that today help us to organize work in the hospital in practice. We realized that this is an education that significantly improves our capabilities from the point of view of organizing medical care, because the right organization in today's context certainly requires management of this process, strategic development, management accounting. And we received all these skills during training at EMAS, thanks to our business trainers. Thanks to EMAS that such cooperation was possible and that such cooperation will lead us to new victories and achievements.
