“The faculty know the executives who come to the program have significant experience and teach by engaging in an exchange of ideas: between students and faculty and among students. When everyone shared their experiences it brought a lot of learning to the table; I often saw faculty take those experiences and incorporate them into their lesson.”
“Nearly all the assignments relate back to your job. Nearly all of the assignments require you to apply the concepts, techniques and processes with an analysis of your company. Also, getting a better finance and accounting background has given me a different way of thinking about decisions. I’m more involved and influential in bigger decisions now.”
"The UT EMBA for Global Supply Chain was definitely a game changer for me. Over the course of one year, I was able to take a step back and understand the opportunities that currently exist within the global supply chain, and more importantly, I am now equipped with the tools and knowledge to help lead first class organizations in persevering forward and embracing those opportunities. As a result, one of the greatest benefits I received this year was the development of life-long friendships with my already successful and driven classmates."
