Participant Testimonial

"It is one of the best executive programs Sloan has to offer. Whilst I have not attended many in the same school, it is pertinent to mention that the areas covered in the course are essentially managerial and leadership biased. It helps to tone up my alder of creativity from courses on innovation,product development and marketing; expanded my sense of passion and delivery from courses on HR and people management; and also rebranded my strategic insights from courses on leadership and technology, in summary. It has also helped to establish relationship with eminent executives beyond the shores of my country, thus impacting positively on my flair for a second international language and my views on globalization. GEA is one in a million program at all times!" —ADEKUNLE A.
