Flexibility emphasised by CBS EMBA programme according to Lasse Veng
Some people are just driven. Lasse Veng launched his managerial career only a year after graduating from university as a mechanical engineer. Barely into his 20s, he was in charge of moving his organisation's production and manufacturing operations from Denmark to Australia, managing the training of a team based in Australia, and ensuring that all the bolts were in place, he says, to, "guarantee high efficiency once everything was set in motion."
Today, the Danish-born director of operations development has racked up over 20 years of leadership experience. In 2015, Veng completed his executive MBA (EMBA) at Copenhagen Business School (CBS). "I wanted to educate myself and go from being a specialist to a generalist,” says Veng of his reasons for enrolling in the EMBA, adding that; “I specifically wanted to focus on improving my finance and marketing skills.”

People who can understand organizations from the bottom up, as well as from the top down are a rare and valuable resource. Veng had a complete understanding of engineering and had picked up his management knowhow as he went along, over a period of 17 years. "My view of the business was not quite complete, however," he reasons. "I needed a proper outside-in view."
