  • Congratulations, Senator Mike Hastings!

    Many congratulations to our EMBA alumnus Michael Hastings (class of 2011) for being elected as the Senator from the 19th Senate District of Illinois.

    Mike has already notched up an impressive list of accomplishments. A 2003 graduate of United States Military Academy at West Point, Mike served in the United States Army and was eventually promoted to the rank of Captain. He was also awarded the Bronze Star for his meritorious service in a combat zone.  While at West Point, Mike played football as offensive lineman on their Division I team for four seasons.

    Mike graduated from the EMBA program at the University of Illinois (with honors) in 2011. We’re very happy for his accomplishments and wish him the very best for a long and productive career in public life.

    Congratulations, Captain Hastings! The Illini nation is very proud of you!
