The small study group experience provided me an opportunity to explore and appreciate diversity in a collaborative environment.  As the Director of Space Systems Program Operations, I implemented this model in a corporate structure when building the operations team to oversee and improve space sensor production performance. The result was a highly creative, effective team and a reduction in overall cycle time and workmanship defects.

EMBA Class of 2000

On entering the program I knew that I would gain great value from the financial analysis and accounting classes. One big surprise though was the great practical benefits I obtained from other courses. Halfway through this class, I basically recovered the financial investment in the program by applying a few key marketing principles at my company.

Executive MBA Class of 2002

The CU Executive MBA program was a lot more rigorous, fulfilling, and rich in content than a traditional MBA. There was just no comparison. All of my classmates were intent on getting their education, developing professionally, and opening up new opportunities. After completing the program I took advantage of CU’s dual-degree option to complete a second master’s degree in finance. With the Executive MBA as my core, I was largely able to design my own program.

The most valuable aspect of the program was the confidence it gave me in the leadership of my division. It was great to work with and learn from professors who are active in the 'real world' and well respected across the world.
