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 9 locations across 3 continents. These modules mean, that once you are our EMBA participant, you are given access to our 9 partner schools for life-long learning opportunities. Managers benefit from first-hand experience in these places with diverse insights and strategic value for the 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.

The BMI learning experience

As a solely executive education-focused institution, we are able to react faster and offer extra attention in everything we do. We listen more attentively. We change constantly. We adapt better to business needs. We go the extra mile to select knowledge from the best international sources.

Expertly Crafted Executive Education

A diverse international faculty ‘cherry-picked’ from the world’s leading business schools helps us develop and deliver highly relevant programmes and keep them always up to date. That type of selectivity and attention to detail applies to everything we do.

It all starts with BMI being a stand-alone management institute. We follow a practical executive approach. So our EMBA is continually refined and crafted, the ‘BMI way’, bringing real benefits for the participants.

  • We think flexible and react fast.

We go the extra mile and create a diverse environment for self-upgrade.

The attention we give each participant is one of the reasons for their high satisfaction. We admit only highly motivated executives with diverse experience, for mutual enrichment, then lead and support them on the journey to personal transformation. The result is an impressive international alumni network and community.

BMI participants also join the HEC Paris alumni network, ranked as the second most powerful business community globally by Financial Times. Consisting of 60,000 members, it opens up unrivaled networking opportunities through numerous joint events.
