Modern managers are no longer only expected to possess the technical knowledge to be great decision-makers, but are also required to have developed the necessary soft skills that will allow them to succeed. Resources such as leadership, strategic thinking, and team management are part of the requirements of a modern leader. The Burch's Master in Business Administration works on this set of skills to help your career evolve and allow you to progress to senior management positions and higher.
We at Burch believe that the Master in Business Administration is a turning point in
your career as it reconciles the enriching experience of the master with your
professional and personal activities.
The Burch Master in Business Administration is designed for the aspiring individuals with industry experience, mid to top management and executives with recently acquired or significantly expanded management responsibilities.
The program is also appropriate for those who have important cross-functional and/or cross-organizational responsibilities, who need to broaden their perspective on company operations, or who will soon become business unit, divisional or regional leaders. Those who need to develop a more comprehensive, integrated perspective and desire to sharpen their strategic, financial and leadership skills will surely benefit most from Burch Master education.

Za nastavak obrazovanja odabrala sam MBA na Burch Univerzitetu jer program obuhvata širok spektar oblasti koje su potrebne u modernom poslovnom okruženju, a profesori su vrsni i posvećeni radu sa studentima.
