BMI – an institute for executive education that has been providing executive education for two decades, is taking a significant step forward by establishing itself strong internationally. A new office was incorporated in Brussels and the team of experienced professionals was allocated to fortify BMI brand as global executive education force to disrupt Western market.
“The experience gained over two decades and our close relationship with partner schools allowed us to look ahead and make resolute decisions. BMI stands out for its exceptional quality – we are already ranked 27th in the Ivy Exec Global Executive MBA Program Ranking, lectures are delivered by world-class academic professors and executive practitioners, and our alumni network is expanding. We intend to maintain this high standard in Brussels too. We are proud, because this is the first time a programme of this level has expanded from Lithuania to abroad.” – says Jaunius Pusvaškis, Director General at BMI.
An outstanding 4-Continent EMBA Programme is being designed in conjunction with BMI’s lasting and honourable partner UCLouvain in Belgium.
“As one of the co-founders of the BMI in 1999, the Louvain School of Management is proud to witness the exceptional growth and success that BMI has had in the executive education market. Focusing on educational quality and international differentiation, BMI has managed to construct a set of executive trainings that delivered exactly what’s promised: personal transformation for excellence. It is therefore a natural step for UCLouvain to turn to the BMI for our first joint venture in executive education, – the international 4-Continental Executive MBA. Combining the scientific and disciplinary strength of the Louvain School of Management with the unique expertise in executive education of BMI, the new international EMBA will offer the best of the two partners. “– says Prof. Per J. AGRELL, Dean of Faculty at Louvain School of Management, UCLouvain.
One of the key features of BMI’s EMBA programme is the international network of world-class managerial professionals and lecturers who have extensive experience in both academia and business. Lectures are given by business elite experts from highest ranked business schools such as HEC Paris in France, Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China or Tulane University in the United States.
Since 1999, BMI has been offering the only Western European-level EMBA programme in Lithuania. This programme has been granted with EPAS accreditation by EFMD Global, the most prestigious accreditation body for business schools in the world, which testifies to the international character of the curriculum and compliance with the highest standards of teaching quality and academic excellence. More than 800 leaders in the region have already evaluated BMI’s EMBA Programme curriculum as outstanding. As many as 26 per cent of this year’s BMI EMBA Class XXI executive students are chairpersons or members of the board at various organisations, whereas 22 per cent of the class are business owners.
The first managerial class of UCLouvain BMI 4-Continent MBA Programme will start in January 2021.
