Faculty Message:

"Mastering accounting as a common language of business has never been so relevant and exciting for us all. Accounting can serve as the global language, allowing us to travel anywhere and reach whomever we make business with. On the other hand, emotional intelligence, as the basis for effective organizational behavior, allows us to connect and collaborate on a deeper level. Interestingly, if you understand that accounting is merely a tool to translate basic human behaviors into numbers, you will see how nicely financial literacy and emotional intelligence complement each other in actual management practice.

I get great joy out of conducting training in these two different but equally important MBA skills. Be prepared to be good at both, as that’s what it takes to be a leader."
