“Berlin is one of the top locations for entrepreneurship in the fields of technology, digitization, and creative industries. As the foremost newspaper for opinion leaders, it is important for us to support future business decision makers in Berlin and facilitate their success in founding new businesses,” explains Florian Kranefuß, Managing Director of Tagesspiegel. “The start-up scene stands for innovation and digitization. These will continue to be important areas in the future, ones from which we receive substantial input as a publishing company.”
“From an Executive MBA, entrepreneurs gain a thorough grounding in the processes which are likely to make their business idea a successful venture,” says Zoltán Antal-Mokos, Dean of Degree Programs at ESMT. “With faculty input on business organization and leadership challenges, as well as peer feedback on each new idea, the entrepreneur receives an entirely new source of information and motivation outside of his or her existing peer network.”
