The faculty were very personally engaged with me while I was deployed overseas and made sure that I could reenter the program with the next cohort upon my return. I cannot say enough for the feeling of community they instill. The cohort of students is top notch, diverse, and collaborative. The program is the only EMBA I know that has both strong in residence classwork matching the full-time program and two overseas residency period.
