EMBA Student Body
Executive MBA Students
Students in the Executive MBA program come from a wide variety of professional backgrounds. One of the strengths of the program is the diversity of the work and professional experience that the students bring to the program. The typical EMBA student can not be easily categorized by what they do or where they work. A more accurate description of the student would be an individual who is mature, focused and motivated.
