The 32 men and 21 women in the ESMT full-time MBA class of 2013 are from 27 countries, including Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Colombia, Germany, Greece, India, Iraq, Israel, Malaysia, Portugal, Russia, the United States, and Vietnam.

“We have increased our class size to more than 50 students this year. Together with last year’s AACSB accreditation and successful performance of the ESMT executive MBA in the Financial Times ranking, this is another important milestone,” commented Nick Barniville, MBA director at ESMT.
