Enriched Learning Environment
Each EMBA class is a diverse group of people that could include executives from multinational corporations, health care professionals, media managers, or entrepreneurs running their own businesses. Students are selected for their motivation, professional and personal achievements, potential for continuing success, and strong interpersonal skills. Because of this, our classes are a stimulating learning environment in which students can crosspollinate ideas with others as talented and capable as they are.
