Inauguration of the 16th edition

On November 17, the inauguration of the 16th edition of the MBA Gdańsk University of Technology studies took place. We welcomed Students in the beautiful Senate Hall of Politechnika Gdańska to emphasize the importance of this day and show the important place played by the Executive MBA Program in the University’s structure.


Event guests

In the welcome speech, Vice-Rector for Internationalization and Innovation Professor Janusz Nieznański presented the University of Technology as ranked highest among technical universities in the competition ‘Excellence Initiative – Research University’ and a centre of education according to the highest world standards.

The Dean of Faculty of Management and Economics of Gdansk University of Technology, Professor Małgorzata Gawrycka, emphasized the importance of the AMBA accreditation, which we obtained in 2022 for the Executive MBA Program and the Master’s International Management Program for the next five years.

MBA Director Beata Krawczyk-Bryłka, PhD welcomed 24 new MBA Students to the MBA community, guided by the motto: “MBA is not only the education… but the values we bring together”.

The tradition of the inauguration ceremony is a lecture given this year by prof. Krzysztof Zieba: “Opening Scary Door” – we hope that the inspirational speech about a growing human population, limited resources, and GDP will even increase the curiosity of our new MBA Gdańsk University of Technology cohort and that it will open our MBA Students to new perspectives.
