Georgia Tech EMBA Sets Up Students for International Success

Georgia Tech EMBA

Every year, the EMBA program at the Georgia Institute of Technology at the Scheller College of Business brings new opportunities to students in the program, expanding their global leadership abilities through hands-on projects that asks them to work outside of the classroom and around the world.

The EMBA program at Scheller is focused around two major parts of a rigorous curriculum: a capstone project that requires students to work with a company on a real-time business challenge, along with hands-on international visits. Just within 2017, EMBA students would travel both to China and to Panama for a visit to the Georgia Tech Logistics Innovation and Research Center.

The reasons why a business professional might apply to the Global EMBA program at Scheller can vary, yet by graduation all students can claim indelible new skills and global experiences. For Fard Pasha, Global IT Director at the Coca-Cola Company, Scheller’s Global EMBA was a natural next step to enhance his business skills abroad and help him be a global leader. For Kara Mayo, approaching the program with an undergraduate degree in engineering, the program’s focus on innovation, technology resources and global business helped make up her mind.

While their reasons for choosing the Global EMBA and their plans after graduation may have varied, both Pasha and Mayo observed the invaluable benefits of the program, observing six main skills they had gained in the program that would set them apart from other global leaders. Mayo and Pasha observed a focus on strategic perspectives, the integration of innovation and technology, cultural awareness, corporate social responsibility, core values and a powerful network of classmates and advisers that would help set Scheller EMBAs apart from the rest of the pack.
