Why This Program?
“Having worked for 20 years, I wanted a program where I could reflect on my own experiences and perspectives, and also learn from those of my classmates to reach better outcomes in my job. I came to MIT’s EMBA Program because MIT is hands down the best in terms of a quality education. I have an IT background, and this program’s focus on theory, technology and cutting-edge innovation was exciting. There isn’t a week that goes by that you don’t hear about innovation coming out of MIT. I wanted to be part of this ecosystem.”
