"I came to NYU Stern because I wanted to force myself to think out of the box, and after one year in the Program I’m reassured that it was the right decision. Professors bring theory to life with topics that can be applied next Monday at work. And most importantly, my classmates are a talented, open-minded, experienced and diverse crowd that just makes the journey even more interesting and joyful.​"

"I would encourage students to look forward to Strategy, part of the EMBA core curriculum, since it provides you with the tools to think at a higher level about competition and why businesses succeed or fail. In addition, it can help you to evaluate companies from a career perspective and identify strong characteristics of firms that you may want to work for in the future."​
