Executive MBA

WHY an Executive MBA?

Sure, I was making good on that September 11th promise I made to myself. But also, there’s Tim. Early in my career Tim was doing his MBA at NYU, he said to me “I think and MBA suits you, you should get an MBA”. And so I did.


The Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) degree program, designed for working business professionals, delivers a total graduate education experience preparing students for new and expanding responsibilities as senior-level functional or general managers. It is a rigorous, value added program that is limited to a select number of qualified students.


The program requires at least 64 credit hours to complete, of which 32 are for required and elective courses, and at least 32 are for the research and dissertation process. If you’re keeping track, that’s about two years of academics, and the rest on writing the dissertation. I stretched those two years a little bit further, but we can talk about that when we sit for coffee.


During the week-long, experience-driven international residency, I was immersed in complex thriving Brazilian business environments which accelerated my skills in global competitive issues, crisis management, supply chain challenges and stakeholder leadership. The residency was with the COPPEAD graduate school of business at The Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.
