Success Story

Maria Giannaki


“The i-MBA gave me the unique opportunity to make a shift to my career and to move from academia to a business environment. With the i-MBA, my exposure to a dynamic learning environment was significant since I got inspired by professors and I have learnt with professionals, of the highest level. Working as Head of Training for multinational companies and being accountable for identifying, designing, implementing and overviewing their training needs, this degree equipped me with the necessary skillset to enhance the workplace performance and set the standards for excellence in professional practice. Furthermore, it should be noted that one of the most important assets of the program is its dynamic, ambitious and fun alumni group of young professionals who make the participation in the program worth your time, money and effort even more.”
