The Canadian Executive MBA programme (CEMBA) conducted by SGH in partnership with the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) was once again ranked at the 1st place in the MBA programmes ranking by Perspektywy Education Foundation and was awarded 100 points. Our other programme – MBA-SGH – took the 7th place this year. The committee evaluated 31 MBA programmes available in Poland. The position in the ranking was determined based on teaching staff, recommendations of the alumni, content of the programme and preferences of the employers, among others. In the eyes of the employers, the SGH programmes took the top two spots and were clearly ahead of the competition.

In March 1968, after a wave of student demonstrations defending civic liberties rolled through Poland, the communist authorities of People’s Republic of Poland instigated an anti-Semitic campaign. Both processes affected the Central School of Planning and Statistis (SGPiS), as SGH was known at the time. In response to the brutal suppression of a demonstration by students from University of Warsaw on March 8, on Monday, March 11, a student rally was organised at SGPiS. The rally was attended by rector Wiesław Sadowski, whose words „this rally is legal, because I am taking part in it” went down in history. By joining the students, university employees attempted to ensure safety during the event and – above all – to stop SGPiS students from taking to the streets.
