BMI’s 2017 Start of the new academic year wows with menu of creative disruption

BMI renewed its “Back-to-School Gathering” tradition this week with a lively event in Vilnius focused on the topic of creative disruption and attended by well over 150 business leaders: prominent BMI alumni, current executive participants of BMI’s 4-Continent Executive MBA, and other ambitious high-level managers considering joining the high-powered programme.
 
“This year, along with the strong dose of knowledge and networking that our back-to-school event for executives always offers, we put real barbeque back on the menu, and that was a big hit,” said BMI Director General Jaunius Pusvaškis. “For those thinking of applying to BMI, it was a great chance to talk with alumni and staff, and the special interactive seminar was both entertaining and inspiring for everyone – a great example of creative disruption,” he added.
 
The evening, at the Pakrantė Creative Industries Centre, began with a presentation of the world-class curriculum and 100% international faculty of the 4-Continent EMBA, for which applications are currently being accepted, and other BMI programmes for executives at 11 venues around the world. BMI Chairman Rolandas Valiūnas, the head of a leading Baltic law firm and a graduate of the first BMI EMBA class in 1999, spoke briefly about the huge value of BMI studies. A number of other diverse top BMI alumni also made themselves available to answer potential applicants’ questions.
 
Jurgis Didžiulis (also a BMI graduate) then got all those present thinking and moving with an interactive disruptive-innovation musical seminar that’s been showcased across Europe. And finally everyone enjoyed some good barbeque and refreshing drinks provided by sponsor Volfas Engelman.
