Thus, the timing to embark on an Executive MBA journey and learn about inter alia global risk management, corporate strategy, transformation, and mega-trends from the world-class faculty of the Stockholm School of Economics as well as my fellow students in the SSE MBA 2023 cohort is without a doubt the best possible.”
“I am certain that the upcoming Executive MBA experience will take my business acumen to the next level and transform me into a truly global, more insightful, as well as highly influential and versatile leader.” says Andrews.
“I cannot wait to meet both the SSE faculty and my fellow students and embark on what I expect will be nothing short of a one-of-a-kind personal and professional experience.” continued Andrews. “The opportunity to attend the SSE MBA program at Stockholm School of Economics will definitely be the icing on my “professional cake” during the upcoming 18 months.”
The SSE MBA program will give Oskar a solid foundation in general management and support him in realizing his full potential in current and future leadership roles. He will also contribute greatly to the program and his peers and be a good ambassador for Stockholm School of Economics (SSE), DNB Bank and the Norwegian-Swedish Chamber of Commerce (NSHK).”
