Important deadlines

Acceptance of applications for the next programme run (year 2024):  By September 15, 2022

Estimated start date of the next programme run (year 2022): November 2022

Due to the prevailing pandemic uncertainties, we are not able to estimate if or when a weekend executive study program can start again. Following this, it is not possible to go on a study trip abroad or take part in a weekend outdoor leadership training, even though both activities are compulsory parts of this program. At the same time, preferences of applicants for MBA education are changing in terms of its form, which may reduce probability of returning to the same format of an executive weekend study program.
