International Seminar Highlights
Each year the EMBA class travels to an emerging area of the world to explore issues associated with doing business internationally. This year, the EMBA Class of 2015 will travel to South Africa as part of their International Seminar requirements.

Leadership Edge, A Professional Coaching Program

A personal, professional coaching program called Leadership Edge is also included in the curriculum. 

Our Leadership Edge program is a personal, professional coaching resource that provides all students with access to 20 hours of coaching during the program that is tailored to their own individual, professional needs.  With the help of a professional coach, students are encouraged to identify and address areas for development that are critical for their own future professional success

Areas that are typically addressed in our coaching program include (but are not limited to):

  • conflict management, 
  • establishing work-life balance, 
  • professional networking for career development, and 
  • developing your own personal leadership style.  

Coaching sessions are scheduled by the student to ensure that they are able to take advantage of this developmental program in a way that does not conflict with their work or personal schedules.
