Now that first semester is over, I can breathe a sigh of relief, at least for now. I have found this program to be academically stimulating and at times intense. The instructors come to this program with credentials that are quite impressive. My classmates are from all walks of life representing industries such as Health Care, Manufacturing, Human Resources, Banking, Insurance, Sales and Marketing, Real Estate, Business Consulting, Legal, and Small Business Start Ups. The diversity in skill set enables a unique learning environment and some very unique perspectives. I call our class, The 2013 EMBA Think Tank.
