We live in very interesting times, in which high-quality knowledge is easily accessible, as long as you know where to reach it. Stay close to us and our partners, and you will gain access to the most esteemed professionals, the most important events and latest trends.

Below you will find a selection of events that we feel are relevant to our student community and in line with our core principles.

For almost six years now, we have been offering MBA Master Classes to the public on a monthly basis. These events are free to the public, but you need to reserve a spot by sending an email to with your name, company and position.

We are convinced that it is the responsibility of universities, as generators and repositories of knowledge, to make this knowledge available to the communities in which they are active. This is MSM Romania’s way of giving back to the community.

In addition, this is a good chance for those who are considering an MBA program to ‘test drive’ the professors who teach in our program.
