STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

The Katz course work and pace stretched my productive capacity. This challenge was integral in developing my character and confidence. This became extremely important during the COVID crisis as I was asked to step into a stretch role and lead a mission-critical program. When I look back, I can clearly see how my Executive MBA prepared me for that moment.

Philips, Engineering Category Leader

The Executive MBA program has filled in gaps in my business knowledge, particularly in areas of accounting and marketing, that has enabled me to have better conversations with my customers and helps me better communicate with my finance team on contractual issues, making me more effective in my role.
