I am privileged that I had the opportunity to be part of the Executive Development Program at Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. From April to June 2022 I spent three delightful months with a diverse group of professionals from different industries around the globe. It was an amazing revelation to hear the views and ideas of these prolific future leaders from different backgrounds and areas of work that helped me broaden my horizons considerably. I would not hesitate to call on any of my classmates, as we have built a strong network and relationships outside of my usual spheres.
Kellogg has managed the transition to hybrid learning exceptionally well, always soliciting feedback from us about what it could do better and adjusting in real time to provide high quality virtual or in-person course works. The faculty and staff are world-class, creating insightful and inspiring learning environment. The course material provided is up-to-date, providing current trends and ideas. There is so much content that I still have to revisit even after the course is over, so I can continue to learn and develop.
The Kellogg’s Executive Development Program (EDP) has provided robust understanding of what effective leadership looks like in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world. I would highly recommend the course to anyone, and especially to people who commit to growth and success. This EDP is undeniably one of those opportunities and an inflexion point in the professional growth.
Special thanks to the Zafirovski Executive Education Program of Macedonia2025 and my company Alkaloid AD Skopje for providing me with such a unique opportunity to be part of this prestigious program of Kellogg School of Management in Evanston, USA.
The change in perspective that I got as a result of these three months is amazing and very inspiring. I believe that I grew into a better person, and therefore will become a better leader as a result of the learnings.
Let us get back to work and apply what we have learned!
