Experience what we call “interconnected thinking” for yourself!
The Executive Talk series has been hosted by Transilvania Executive Education for almost 5 years. These sessions are meant to offer a blended experience that could link the notions and theories taught during the Executive MBA modules with case studies and experiences that are deeply embedded in the local and regional business context. The talks are delivered by guest speakers with expertise in areas and domains that are connected to the modules studied within the Executive MBA programme, reuniting people with diverse backgrounds, from IT, banking, and manufacturing to aeronautics, engineering, and education. Some of the speakers are Romanian and working in Romania while others are international, working for multinational or global companies with operations in Romania and Central and Eastern Europe.
So far, we have organized more than 50 talks which have been attended on average by 35-40 persons, entrepreneurs, and professionals from the business community in Cluj and North-Western parts of Romania. The talks are usually held in English and sometimes in Romanian, no longer than 1h – 1h 30 mixing presentations with interactive discussions and debates. The Executive Talks offer business professionals from Romania the opportunity to interact with experienced managers with wide international expertise while guest speakers are exposed to a new business environment and a diverse audience where new business ideas and opportunities can emerge.Interested to receive more information about the next EMBA Talk?
