Your Classmates

When you enroll in the EMBA program, you will join a select cohort of experienced entrepreneurs, professionals and managers who aspire to roles of greater responsibility in their organizations, and know they need additional knowledge to get there. They will represent start-up firms, mid-sized businesses, large corporations, and non-profit and government entities. Their academic backgrounds will vary as well, with disciplines ranging from the liberal arts, engineering, science and business and everything in between, and many will have already acquired advanced degrees.

As an EMBA candidate, you will enjoy an unparalleled group learning experience. You will learn as much from each other as you do from the faculty – both during class sessions and in meetings with your study groups. The cohort experience provides camaraderie, continuity and mutual support throughout the program, and develops a rich network of professional ties and corporate contacts that will remain long after you graduate.
