noted in his comments that an EMBA teaches competence in a broad range
of business fundamentals as well as leadership skills to overcome today's
business challenges. Most students are business executives who enter the
program with a specific area of expertise. EMBA students learn to be aware
of inconsistenies in behavior and decision making in order to spot problems
before they get serious.
