Realizing that business often extends beyond country boundaries, Nikolay Samofatov wanted a program with a decidedly global focus. “The world is a very interconnected place, says Samofatov, CEO of Red-Soft Corporation, a software engineering firm based in Russia. “In business, we’re dealing with global economic forces.”
During his program, he traveled to eight countries: Canada, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, China, SAR, Argentina, and Brazil, spending one to three weeks in each country. In addition, he gained new colleagues who work throughout the world.
“Because of what I learned in the Executive MBA Program, I felt I could build a business in any country – some things are different, but after finishing this program, you know how to work anywhere.”
