The MIT Executive MBA: Building a Network for the Future

Sebastien Girard, Vice President of Talent Acquisition and Workforce Planning at Parkland Hospital, reflects on the factors that influenced his decision to pursue the MIT Executive MBA, including the school and program’s reputation, access to knowledgeable professors, and the caliber of his fellow student colleagues. “You can almost learn more from your colleagues in the room than the professor—and that’s impressive,” Girard says.

MIT’s Executive MBA program brings together individuals who are extraordinarily talented and driven to learn from the program, and each other. Currently Girard’s classmates include a global sales director for Toyota, a vice president for Prudential, a director for Canada’s largest instrument manufacturer, and the director of social media for a political candidate. Participants not only have access to their colleagues’ insights and ideas during the program, but for the duration of their professional careers.
