"My time in the MBA has been exciting and interesting"

RUMBA-1Updating your knowledge

The MBA is in many ways much more than a two-year graduate course. The alumni association, aptly named RUMBA, gives students that have graduated with an Executive MBA from Reykjavik University an opportunity to maintain, and grow, the invaluable network they established during their time together at RU.

Jökull Torfason Event Manager at the Iceland Symphony Orchestra - MBA 2022“I applied for an MBA at RU to harness its excellent network within the business sector. Given the highly competitive nature of RU’s MBA selection process, I knew my cohort would feature ambitious and brilliant people who would motivate and inspire me, and from whom I could learn a great deal. In many ways my MBA experience has exceeded my expectations. I have acquired new skills, further developed my talents as a manager and forged lifelong friendships along the way.”
