This program is life changing. The bond that will be created among your cohort is stronger than that of blood family and the memories you make along the way will last a lifetime. Stetson's EMBA program is so much more than the educational piece of learning the ins and outs of the ever changing business world, but you will also dig deep inside yourself to start growing as a leader and developing your leadership style. The leadership journey you are about to embark on is like none other. You will only get out of this program, what you put into it. Blood, sweat and tears are the minimal requirements!

Stetson University's EMBA program is a stand-out for those considering an EMBA that is fully accredited and academically rigorous for a multitude of reasons. The professors are all outstanding, talented and committed. The wonderful support of the program staff, hassle-free class registration, books pre-ordered and hand-delivered, the great classroom setting, and the many other unique benefits all streamlined the logistical elements. Faculty and staff clearly go to great lengths to make their students' environment comfortable and well-equipped to focus on learning. While the program is demanding, the effective arrangement of the courses allows classmates to manage and maintain a full-time career. The EMBA's cohort class style also offers the ideal venue to create a foundation of lifetime colleagues and friends. I am confident in saying that we will all be able to leverage what we learned from the EMBA throughout our varied future paths and careers.
During the program, each EMBA cohort takes a trip together to an international location to observe foreign industry, including both local and multinational businesses. The trip takes place after fundamental coursework has been completed so that differences in application across the diverse business disciplines can be appreciated. As opposed to a classroom, business practices and environments are studied in real time.
Graduates often cite in their exit interviews that the international trip was one of the most rewarding experiences of their time in the EMBA program—an experience that facilitated bonding between the cohort members. Destinations are chosen based upon the size and diversity of the industry of the city as well as the overall economic climate of the country. Prior locations include Turkey, Hungary, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Dubai and South Africa.
