How would you summarise the EMBA’s impact on an individual’s career?
At RSM we believe that the EMBA should be a transformational experience. That is why we do everything we can to ensure that the programme challenges the assumptions of our students and causes them to reflect on what they do and rethink some of their ways of working. Our Personal Leadership Development helps our students to build their strengths and mitigate their weaknesses. Innovative and creative teaching methods such as in-class exercises, simulations, group work, discussions, case studies, peer reviews and mentoring help them to develop deeper self-knowledge and identify practical ways to apply their knowledge. Executive MBA candidates have to apply themselves in real situations, they receive feedback on their performance, they re-examine their actions, and work on areas for improvement. This is about reflection, discovery, and application.
All of this lead to well-rounded individuals that start carrying themselves differently in the workplace. They go through a lot of (positive!) change, and it shows. We hear from our participants that, before long, they start getting more new projects coming their way, they start to be involved in more strategic initiatives/decisions, they start to lead and/or to lead more people and, ultimately for some, this brings about career progression and change.
