Testimonial Full time MBA

"SBS was a must to my career development. After 7 years working in the banking industry in a managerial position I started a MBA at SBS and it was definitely the right choice.

The knowledge and skills I got there, the multi cultural approaches of negotiation, the global view of the market, not to mention the great friends I got there were only few of the reasons why SBS was essential to my professional and personal life.

I just got the best job I could imagine in the financial markets and this course was mandatory to get this position. I strongly recommend this course to all of them who are willing to grow professionally."
