Prof. Witold Bielecki, head of Postgraduate Studies at the Leon Kozmiński Academy of Entrepreneurship and Management (LKAEM), talks to Ewa Hancock.

With so many MBA programs around, what determines people's choices?
In Poland, as in most other countries, the "name" of the institution is most important. Ours is one of the oldest MBA programs-next year we will celebrate our 15th anniversary. Not only does this mean that our staff have a lot of experience, but there's a great network of graduates-800 people-who all have a stake in the institution. The Alumni Association not only puts on social events, but is a way of keeping in touch with people you have studied with, and keeping up to date with the latest developments via our publications. Some people even return to take further postgraduate or executive courses.

What are the choices available for foreigners not fluent in Polish?
The Postgraduate Studies Department of the LKAEM has a strong international profile. The University of Bradford's Master's and MBA programs offer a chance for students who would like a British qualification, but without the expense of traveling to the UK.

The postgraduate degree taught in English gives students a qualification from an Equis-recognized institution and prepares them for the Chartered Institute of Marketing examinations. Nor is English a limiting factor-the department also has a Russian MBA, taught by visiting faculty members from Moscow, and a German language MBA.

Is the MBA only of use to managers in the private sector?
The title "Master of Business Administration" is slightly misleading-the MBA degree prepares managers for all types of organizations. Increasingly, governmental and non-profit organizations are finding that the broad range of skills and knowledge acquired on an MBA is invaluable in coping with the challenges facing a modern institution. Accounting and finance, or human resource management, in the non-profit sector can often be greater challenges than those facing managers in large international organizations with set procedures.
