Excellence through Collaboration

Innovative and effective

For two decades, BMI has been developing high-level managers and entrepreneurs able to lead organisations in a global marketplace. With flexibility, efficiency, and excellence.

Our flagship INTERNATIONAL EXECUTIVE MBA was among the first individual programmes accredited by the EFMD, a global guarantor of quality. Participants rate the EMBA very highly and its graduates are now leading companies in over 30 countries.

Uniquely, we bring in top executive educators from leading business schools worldwide – professors and practitioners from many countries who have built, advised, and inspired diverse companies, also helping to advance the science and art of management. They deliver all our real-world focused, entrepreneurially minded, values-driven programmes.

Participants also discover new opportunities through BMI’s exclusive ‘executive mobility modules’ at up to 10 locations across 3 continents. Managers benefit from first-hand experience in these places with diverse insights and strategic value for business.

Partners in excellence

BMI was founded in 1999 by leading European management schools including HEC Paris of France, NHH of Norway, LSM at UCLouvain in Belgium and Lithuania’s VMU.

Over the years we have further built and expanded our powerful educational partnerships to include China’s prestigious Antai College at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Tulane University’s Freeman School in the USA, St. Petersburg GSOM in Russia, Aalto University Executive Education in Finland, and others.

Partners like that are a key part of why we are always at the cutting edge.
