Teaming for Success
To thrive in business, it is essential to understand how to lead high performing teams. Our EMBA program is team based, to promote collaboration, decision-making, resourcefulness, ingenuity, and entrepreneurship. Teams consisting of five to six students, representing a diversity of experience and personality, collaborate on assignments throughout the program. This teaming simulates the experience of working in a strategic alliance.
Business doesn’t stop for a time zone or a border. The KSU EMBA program features an international consulting project so you can gain invaluable global business skills. After conducting in-depth research, including market assessment, competitive analysis and other critical functions, our students and faculty embark on a 12-day trip to a country in South America. While meeting with a company onsite, you will experience the cultural and structural challenges of growing an international business firsthand. This project takes you beyond the classroom and transforms you into a global leader.
