'EMBA Helped Me Broaden My Horizon'

'The Executive MBA program has helped me tremendously as a manager, by teaching me to look at things from different perspectives. This EMBA course has encouraged me to broaden my horizon and take a close look at how I can improve in my own professional field. The program also focuses on the social impact of your business. You look at long-term solutions that will help your company contribute to society. The Executive MBA course was easy to combine with my personal life. Lectures only took place during one weekend a month, which meant I did not have to sacrifice quality time with my family or my job.'
