"Rutgers EMBA was the right course for me as I was looking for a course where I could learn from people with diverse backgrounds. The course was a great mix of structured learning as well as real-life cases. The final capstone week was where I could put all the learning together to apply to Business Strategy as well as Corporate Strategy. I believe the course helped me to get a 360 perspective and an executive mindset that are tremendously critical for me to advance in my career."
