"Personally, I've been pushed out of my comfort zone. I felt safe to extend myself here, safe to fail in a way I could never feel at work, and I was always able to get honest feedback from my fellow students."

"I began to apply my EMBA learning at work, from day one. I work in biotech — my area is financial analysis — but manufacturing is a big driver of our business. From the first day the EMBA began to educate me about supply chain management, customer operations, distribution strategies — those areas applied immediately to my work at Genentech."
