Our students and alumni are happy to share their success stories

AUI's EMBA program gave me the opportuntiy to build strong business management skills, knowing that I come from a purely engineering background (BSCS AUI '06). I can still remember the brilliant lecturers we had from different background. The learning outcomes of the program were not onlu theoretical, but also very practical to my daily work: business development, project management, organizational and individual behaviors. The program was also an opportunity to build a rich network with professionals from different disciplines. My thesis at the end of the MBA (Impact of Emotional Intelligence, Training in Improving Emotional Competencies, Job Satisfaction and Work Autonomy) has a great impact on my professional career, and shaped the future of my career.
