Great value

“Our EMBA team has attended the Executive MBA Council conference for more than 15 years, and we place great value on the opportunity to connect with our fellow EMBA colleagues. We send two to four representatives each year so that we can spread ourselves across the many excellent sessions, and have presented as well. We come back each year energized and full of fresh ideas on how we can make our 42-year-old program stronger than ever. The council fosters a shared vision and drive for excellence, and the collegiality we feel is simply outstanding.”
