Why did you decide to participate in this program?
My decision to participate in this program was, to prepare myself for my following management role in my current company, learn more about the automotive industry, get in contact with new people from around the world and
learn about their experiences in this interesting industry.


Can you already apply what you have learned to your professional work?

Several things I learned in the course gave me already a better understanding in different situations in my work life.

How do you manage to combine working and studying?
It is a very challenging situation; especially because my work includes weekly travels and my time is very limited.

How important is networking in your studies?

Networking and Team work is always a key factor to success, also in my studies.

What do you think about business studies offered by a University of Technology?
I believe it is a good combination, because technology is this days one of the key factors of companies success, so it is very important that also the future managers have a good understanding about that topic.

The Professional MBA Automotive Industry Program is a unique program that is tailored to the needs of the automotive industry. It is a very supplementary program for the people who wants to enhance their current jobs, yet still enlarge their knowledges in the fields such as economics, accounting, corporate finance, management, innovation, quality, HR, logistics etc. Of course all these benefits comes with a cost which is 2 years dedication, mostly giving up from your social time, money and effort. The program requires individuals to commit themselves to maximize the output; in return it offers an academic team with huge industrial experience, nearly 10 years of an MBA program realization history, a sincere climate to establish networking both among the colleagues and with the lecturers, up-to-date case studies and exercises which are also combined with company excursions, business evenings and chats with opinion leaders. The MBA program also introduces the challenges and trends in the automotive industry that one could not come across fully due to the intensity of their ongoing works. Hence, it creates an overview of the big picture of the automotive industry.
I personally learned a lot from the program both theoretically and practically, which I have been adapting to my daily work. The program also enabled me to improve my personal skills such as leadership, communication and ability to work with others in harmony. Due to the broad and cutting edge knowledge the program provides, I am pretty convinced that I will reach my personal career goals.
