Why This Program?

As an entrepreneur and business person, it was clear to me that the analytical training and tools provided by an MBA are invaluable. The EMBA format worked for my schedule, as I couldn’t step away from my business for a full-time program. I came to MIT because of its reputation, and to MIT Sloan because of its commitment to excellence in business management. I am happy to be at MIT Sloan because of the remarkable people I have the privilege of sitting next to in class. I also liked how the EMBA program provides a balance of immersive study on campus with immediate application of knowledge and tools at work. An additional benefit is that students can be part of the MIT ecosystem and its emphasis on entrepreneurship.
