The Institute for Business and Public Administration from Bucharest (ASEBUSS) was founded in 1993 through a program financed by USAID – The US Agency of International Development (1993-1995). The Romanian-American School of Business, part of the Institute, has been organizing since 1993 The Executive MBA Program (EMBA) – the only American EMBA on the Romanian market in partnership with prestigious US universities. The academic alliance created by ASEBUSS and Kennesaw State University leverages the strengths of each program to the benefit of both students and faculty. Participation in this jointly designed academic experience prepares our students for a leadership role in tomorrow's business organization. Participants learn to manage the cultural, linguistic, technological and geographical boundaries by working within international teams of students to complete a variety of assignments and projects. The opportunity to learn from each other and from their respective employer organizations provides the first-hand experience that cannot be found in other EMBA programs.
