“I’m a Tehran correspondent for London-based Financial Times. When Iran began to open up, I felt I needed more world-class knowledge in leadership and business.”

I’ve especially valued the fact that professors visiting Tehran have experience and expertise also in the practical side of business, rather just in theory.”

“Iran is in critical need of foreign investors”, Bozorgmehr states.

“Economic hardships are massive, and Iranian companies need to go through reforms. I felt the need to understand these questions more deeply when covering business issues.”

The Aalto EMBA program, which is arranged in collaboration with Iranian Business School, has generally corresponded to Bozorgmehr’s expectations.

“I’ve especially valued the fact that professors visiting Tehran have experience and expertise also in the practical side of business, rather just in theory. As a journalist, I value experts with genuine experience.”

As a correspondent for a globally renowned media outlet, right now Iran is a particularly interesting base.

“I hope I will have a chance to also put my knowledge from the Aalto EMBA program to use in reporting on Iranian business stories to an international audience."
