The Executive MBA Class of 2017 just wrapped up its first on-campus residency. An impressive 69 students enrolled this fall, the largest EMBA class to date. The Executive MBA Program launched its inaugural class in 1998 with 28 students. Anchored with its on-campus residencies, international study, and innovative distance learning technologies, Auburn’s program design affords the executive both real time interaction with faculty and fellow executives, and the flexibility of a self-paced distance program without career interruption.
The Class of 2017 comes from 20 states across the country; from California, Nevada, and Montana, to Maryland, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and the Southeast. EMBA students are employed by major companies such as Apple, Chevron, International Paper, SunTrust Bank, FedEx, UPS, the Armed Services, NASA, United Technologies, Michelin, etc., providing ample networking opportunities.
“While the program format is a large part of the attraction for the program, most of the students felt that the value of the program was its great selling point,” said Kim Kuerten, Executive Director. “The all-inclusive tuition, the concierge service from the staff, senior level faculty and the networking opportunities from peers across the country and in a variety of industries, all combined to make this the program of choice for them.”
