"I'm having a BLAST in the program, learning a lot, and making some really good friends along the way. The workload is manageable and the faculty is as understanding as they are competent. The residency periods are galvanizing, to say the least. And, despite the rest of the work being online, our cohort communicates nearly every day—some work stuff, some fun stuff. The faculty is always available, as if they have nothing better to do than be on call for us. Bottom line: I feel so much a part of the university that I just might walk-on for spring training."

“This program blew my mind. Every single detail of the program is so carefully orchestrated and it is very apparent that the faculty truly respects us as students and wants us to succeed this year. Its real value is that it focuses on the total person and leader.”
“The design of the EMBA for Strategic Leadership program is a perfect balance of academics, business strategy and leadership. Embracing the program enables immediate impact on your success as a business executive.”
