"I would not have been interested in the program if I could not obtain the same MBA as the traditional program (as some schools have an Executive MBA instead). I was also happy that everyone in the cohort must have a full-time job. It is important that everyone realized what the group is taking on and dealing with throughout the program; we are all time constrained."
"The experience of a program like this will change the way you think and elevate you into a different class of working professional."
"I am very excited to 'come back home' to Mizzou to complete my MBA. The flexibility of the execMBA program will allow me to remain focused on my career while securing my future with advanced education. It is my goal to utilize the educational knowledge to drive sustainable growth for both Kellogg's and my customer. Completing my MBA will enable personal and professional success as I continue my journey towards servant leadership."
"As a child of Alumni parents, but living in Texas I never thought it would be possible to go to Mizzou. After the execMBA program came to my attention is was a no brainer. Having spent 4 days on campus, I could not feel more welcomed by the faculty and my cohorts. The staff did everything possible to make us truly feel like Tigers in such a short time and I feel privileged to be a part of the inaugural class."
"Coming back to Mizzou to acquire my execMBA brings on several different emotions; excited for coursework and work with my peers, anxious to take on the curriculum, but proud to be doing it within the Mizzou family. Graduating with a degree in Biology and working for Grifols Bioscience I know I have a lot to learn about the different facets of business. After learning about Mizzou's structure and curriculum I knew I could start learning and applying the coursework in real time. The program will allow me to develop my skills and abilities professionally, as well as personally within my community and family."
"Being part of the hybrid MU execMBA program with a cohort of other professionals from a wide variety of industries invites different perspectives to the same topic, broadening knowledge far beyond the classwork materials."
