At the end of June, 40 alumni and participants of the Global Executive MBA program and members of HHL and EADA Business School met in Collbató and Barcelona, Spain, in order to celebrate the very first reunion event. As a joint program, HHL and EADA started four years ago with the first class of Global Executive MBA students. This year, the third class has already graduated, which was one of many reasons that sparked the idea to reunite all GEMBA participants and spend a memorable weekend together. The event started off with a welcome dinner when everyone had the chance to meet old friends as well as new faces from all the Global Executive MBA classes. The next day, the participants worked in teams in an interactive session that was dedicated to the claim of the program “Develop the leader in you!” Afterwards, some went hiking, others went to Barcelona for a visit. In the evening, the group met in the city center of Barcelona for a nice dinner with tapas and continued discussions with friends they met before and those who they had met for the first time during the reunion.
In order to keep the strong bonds with all GEMBA alumni and to foster the network among the participants, the event will definitely be continued. At the same time, HHL and EADA look forward to welcoming the new GEMBA class in October when excellent new candidates are awaited.
