EMBAC also welcomes corporate members. If your organization offers products or services for EMBA Programs, you can increase your visibility in the marketplace and learn more about the industry through membership in EMBAC.
Corporate members benefit from exhibit space and complimentary attendance for two at the annual conference, access to EMBAC’s database of contacts, representation on the EMBAC Board of Trustees, listing in the council directory and on the website, a feature story in the online publication, and access to council communications.
When members describe EMBAC, one word usually comes to the forefront: collegiality. In fact, EMBAC offers one of the most valuable networks for EMBA industry members. The open and sharing nature of EMBAC means you can tap the expertise of colleagues throughout the world.
And we mean the world. EMBAC’s membership includes 275 programs from nearly 200 schools in more than 30 countries and 21 corporate members. An online directory offers members easy access.
Take a closer look at current EMBAC members:
Join the EMBAC community. EMBAC extends academic membership to schools, which means once a school becomes a member, all staff members can take advantage of member benefits. Through research, networking, and best practices, the investment pays itself off very quickly.
I value the Executive MBA Council because it provides outstanding opportunities to connect with a community of other EMBA professionals. The council provides forums to share and discuss best practices and challenges for the industry and our respective schools. I also value the friendships and connections created.
The biggest benefit for me is the exchange and the industry insights. The webinars and the data/research on the industry and trends provided by EMBAC offer valuable insights, which I consider when thinking about further developing my program. Be it at regional meetings or at the annual conference, I really appreciate the meaningful conversations and the open exchange on challenges and ideas, learning from peers and brainstorming together on the future of our industry. And whatever the topic, I am glad to know that I can always pick up the phone and can call on my EMBAC network for advice.
As a corporate member, I have been involved in this amazing EMBA community for over a decade. This is one of the most supportive professional networks I have ever been a part of. We all grow together and learn together each year. Mostly I have made lifelong friendships all while partnering with clients I love.
The annual conferences and the regional meetings are a great way to see who is doing what in the EMBA environment and to share what you are up to do. You may find the right partner to complement your program, whether it is for an international residency, for participant mobility, or the creation of a double degree. EMBAC’s corporate partners are equally valuable. They know the industry inside and out and provide the right advice on everything from marketing, to international study trips, to leadership training, and specialized services. At the end of the day, the key benefit is partnership; it is about building relations and sharing.
