The 22nd cohort of students started their EMBA course program at GSB Mainz this Monday. In perfect weather the GSB Managing Director, Dr. Stefanie Best-Klossok welcomed the 22 students of the new class on the terrace of the Dekanatssaal. She urged participants to use the opening week primarily to get to know each other, as personal interaction is an essential part of the EMBA program.
After the official welcome, the participants had their first course of the Opening Week "Introduction to Business Thinking - Understanding and Innovating Business Models" with Dominik Maier.
At the end of the first course day, the students were invited to a welcome dinner at the Kupferbergterrassen in Mainz. Professor Andrej Gill used the opportunity to once again emphasize t GSB's goal with the EMBA program, namely to develop leaders. Leaders who are willing to take on responsibility and act responsibly in doing so. The aim is to train team players who are aware of their responsible role towards the employees, the company, society and the environment. The atmospheric ambience of the traditional Kupferbergterrassen provided a pleasant atmosphere to reflect on the impressions of the first course day and for personal conversations.
