Students and alumni share their experience:

“The feeling of returning to college was great, and I enjoyed interacting with the EMBA students. Entrepreneurship is a practical and hands-on subject. The session gave an opportunity to learn from real-life business stories and each other’s experience, which was fantastic. It was impressive to see the enthusiasm of students and the quality of their questions. Given their diverse backgrounds and experience, I am sure many of them will become successful entrepreneurs after completing their EMBA program. I wish them luck for all their entrepreneurial ventures.”

“I thank the alumni for their time and valuable insights. Each one of them is an industry leader and, yet, so humble. They shared their journey with us and highlighted their successes and failures. I look forward to more opportunities to connect with our prestigious alumni.”
