Join a group of exceptional collaborators   

Our students are drawn together by their commitment to learn, grow and create a positive impact at both work and in their communities. When you begin the Executive MBA Program, you are assigned to a study group comprised of high-impact, low-ego leaders from diverse industries, geographies, backgrounds and functional areas. You’ll remain with them throughout the two-year program, working together to prepare for exams, complete projects, share perspectives and support one another. 

Alumni often cite their peers as one of the most enriching parts of their education. They forge strong, impactful connections with their teammates, many of which last a lifetime.
