ESMT welcomes new full-time MBA class
- 10th cohort with 58 students from 23 countries
- Three Kofi Annan Fellows from Indonesia, Nigeria, and South Africa
ESMT European School of Management and Technology is welcoming the tenth intake of its full-time MBA program to campus this week. The 58 students in the full-time MBA Class of 2015 come from 23 different countries. Almost 30 per cent of the class is female. On average, the students are 30 years old and have seven years of work experience.
Three participants from Indonesia, Nigeria, and South Africa have been named Kofi Annan Fellows this year. The full scholarship supports students from developing countries who plan to return to their home countries and contribute to the region’s economic development. Thirteen Kofi Annan Fellows have already graduated from ESMT since the fellowship was first awarded in 2011.
“We are delighted to welcome such a diverse MBA class once again. I am always amazed by the diversity that ESMT in particular and Berlin in general continue to attract,” said Nick Barniville, Associate Dean of Degree Programs at ESMT.
