Metin Tekin, MBA class of 2017


Metin Tekin studied a part-time MBA at our Hannover campus last year. Previously self-employed with his own company, Metin realised there was a gap between his engineering skills and his strategic business management skills. Through his studies at GISMA he developed his knowledge and became a well-rounded business professional. Read more about his experience below.


“After founding my own company, I quickly realised that I was lacking management skills. Working as an engineer, I faced difficulties in calculating project offers, making strategic decisions and managing my employees. After talking to some of my friends who had MBA degrees, I was encouraged to pursue an MBA myself and I found that the English-taught, part-time MBA degree offered by GISMA in partnership with the Maastricht School of Management was perfect for me.


Although the full tuition fee was paid by my company, balancing my GISMA Business School work with my work life and family needs was not easy. However, after two very exciting years, I am now able to better understand business problems, ask the right questions and I am now more self-confident. Meeting people from all over the globe, sharing their experiences in group assignments and learning more about a variety of business fields greatly enhanced my knowledge.


What I especially enjoyed about participating in the GISMA/MSM programme was that I had the chance to be taught by internationally-renowned professors from prestigious universities such as TU Hamburg and Cranfield School of Management. All of them were very knowledgeable in their fields and easy to communicate with.”


Although the MBA that Metin studied is no longer available, GISMA Business School offers another full-time MBA: the Grenoble MBA offered by triple-accredited Grenoble Ecole de Management.
