One-Year Part-Time MBA—Challenges in Emerging Markets, and Two-Year Part-Time Executive Doctor of Business Administration Programs in English at INE PAN, Warsaw, Poland

The Institute of Economics of the Polish Academy of Sciences (INE PAN) offers two programs in English, an MBA and Executive DBA, that are based on an innovative, intensive-study module system allowing the participants to continue working while pursuing a prestigious MBA or DBA degree.

Participants come to the Palace of Culture and Science or to the Staszic Palace in Warsaw (two INE PAN sites) only twice during a semester for a five-day session that combines in-depth and thorough class experience with a cultural program which ushers them into Polish music, painting, cinema and historical traditions. The programs’ tuition fees are truly competitive.

Every businessman or woman should be well-versed in management, marketing, accounting, finance, human resource management and decision-making, and should know how to plan, organize, direct and control. INE PAN’s MBA Program provides participants with information and competencies in these areas, but it also goes beyond that. It specializes in case studies pertinent to emerging markets and teaches participants skills that are indispensable for a successful career in a globalizing world.

INE PAN is the only institution in Poland offering a Doctor of Business Administration program. It is open to professionals with considerable business experience who want to achieve more in their lives and do not shy away from looking for deeper and more systematic solutions to economic problems. On graduation, participants earn a DBA degree and may continue towards a PhD degree in economics (two extra years of study).

The aaalication deadline for the MBA and EDBA programs is March 5, 2012-01-26The first modules start on March 28, 2012 (EDBA) and April 18, 2012 (MBA). To find out more, write to mba@inepan.waw.pl

Prof. Marek Belka President of the National Bank of Poland
Member of the Committee on Economic Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences:

Due to recent developments in the world economy, Polish managers are increasingly busy in their workplaces. To get an MBA degree while not quitting one’s job is an option many of them are looking for. In this respect business programs run by INE PAN have become attractive to potential candidates. Not only does INE PAN offer a flexible part-time format of studies, but it also allows candidates to choose between an education in Polish and English. In addition, INE PAN is well aware of the need for practical insights in business processes. Among its lecturers are many distinguished practitioners and experts. They encourage the participants of MBA and DBA programs to systemize their knowledge, boost their creative thinking, and develop new skills and competencies. I will be delighted to see more eager students every year.

Dr. Krzysztof Adamiec Director of Postgraduate, MBA and Doctoral Studies
Institute of Economics of the Polish Academy of Sciences:

The mortgage crises of 2007 and the subsequent events of 2008 (including the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the largest in U.S. history) made us all believe that something was not entirely right with the capitalist system. This belief is supported by many reasons. If the gross economic output of all countries in the world is about $50 trillion, while financial obligations on derivatives total around $500 trillion, then one does not need to find fault with stock or bond market regulations to conclude that there is some strain in the entire system. There is no doubt that such strains in global finances should be rectified. This is not easy to accomplish. Incentive schemes pandering to greed and the disproportional ambition of financiers and politicians are still there. These are exacerbated by the rise of China, continued reliance on hydrocarbons, worrisome demographic changes and many other factors.

What we teach those enrolled on our MBA and DBA programs is to distinguish between different levels of analysis when it comes to the world of finance. Different factors come to the fore when one examines the intricacies of domestic and international financial markets. What we also focus on is the role of the government in economic development. It is no secret that support from state institutions partly accounts for the success of Chinese and Russian companies in the global economy.

The essence of capitalism is not private property or minimum government. It is competition. Once conditions for competition are there, they trigger people’s creativity and determination in attempts to be better than others. We try, however, to make participants of our programs aware of the good and bad conditions for competition and how to survive in both.
