The schedule is unique and is great for working professionals. Also, the team approach was a huge benefit to learning. Finally, the CEO speaker series led by the Chair of the Alaska Airlines Board and the former head of Wells Fargo bank was a huge benefit. We heard from a great mix of CEOs from Fortune 100 companies, successful entrepreneurs, high profile venture capitalists, etc. which really made the classroom learning come to life in interesting ways.
