I would like to thank Macedonia 2025 for the opportunity to participate in a world-class program at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University
I have attended the three-week Executive Development Program in June 2019. We have been accommodated and working for two weeks at the Northwestern campus in Evanston, while during the third week we have moved to downtown Chicago, in an energizing environment – living, learning and working together with a group of amazing people from all around the world. The teaching was done by top-class professors that worked passionately, striking a good balance between theory and practice.
The program equipped me with a very diverse knowledge that will help me improve and increase my expertise in different fields.
The curriculum covered fields necessary for the role of General Manager, with lectures and business case studies in accounting, finance, operations, marketing and strategy.
The program gave me insights on how to enhance my leadership effectiveness, as one of the most important aspects for the future growth of the organizations I lead, including topics like decision making, negotiation, team building and networking.
I have also gone through personal leadership coaching sessions with a professor, which helped me further develop my leadership strategy.
During the stay I have developed friendships and connections with my peers that will last a lifetime!
