In order to meet these challenges we do not only need product experts, but product managers with strong business acumen and a passion for Marketing & Sales.

«The Business Management Curriculum (BMC) is truly an experience that mixes theory and practice. It really helps me to step aside from my daily work and analyze matters from a different perspective. Tailoring the course to Fresenius Medical Care business and sharing experiences with other colleagues is, in every respect, a big plus. I am convinced that the BMC will help me to develop my professional career in order to better serve the company.»

Mario Capurro, DAS GM 2015 – 2017, Fresenius Medical Care

«It is the art to deliver complex content in simple words. It is the energy to engage the student. It is the heart to give results. The art, the energy and the heart – is Rochester-Bern. The art, the energy and the heart – is what Rochester-Bern puts into Fresenius BMC. It engages emotionally, develops the deeper sense of care and devotion towards Fresenius, and provides new knowledge and tools, which I can apply within Fresenius both for the company- & my own self-development. The professors are pros. The classes are dynamic and interactive. It’s like a breath of fresh air. Rochester-Bern implements its vision – the BMC is indeed changing the way I think.»
