Current Student Spotlight

“As an engineer, my workload is extremely busy with tight deadlines. The additional workload of simultaneously going to school full-time, has even more so illuminated the importance of planning, managing, and prioritizing my schedule to successfully accomplish and support all tasks and programs. With such a busy schedule and high pressure, a strong support system becomes essential. The EMBA cohort team building approach helps to create a stimulating learning environment where work can more efficiently and effectively be accomplished as each of us navigate our way through the program. The relationships I have made within the cohort, has quickly become my built-in support system.”
