Summer School

Is AESE Summer School for you?

Today’s global managers need to have knowledge and competencies beyond those offered by university curricula.
They must be able to analyze situations with clarity, make hard decisions and take responsibility for their actions. They have to find solutions to complex problems, while keeping in mind all the  people who are involved in and affected by the process.

The AESE SUMMER SCHOOL program is designed to be a first in-depth contact with the business world. For two weeks in a relaxed but professional environment the participants will develop practical managerial skills, grounded in theoretical knowledge, in the areas of:

  • Company policy
  • Comercial and marketing policy

When I signed up for the Summer School, I made it to complement my training in management, an area quite different from what I’m studying at the university. It was really worth it.

I think anyone who is interested, who is motivated and has initiative and creativity, will enjoy being here. It’s good for the future.
