Managers will succeed only when they can identify and deploy the differences among people. Harvard Business Review, March 2005
The coaching, teaming and leadership aspects of the Executive MBA program are as critical as the traditional tools required to strengthen one's business acumen. It is those valuable aspects which sets this unique program apart from all other MBA programs.
