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; receive feedback on their performance; re-examine their actions, and work on areas for improvement. This is about reflection, discovery, and application. We hear from our participants that, before long, they start getting more new projects coming their way; start to be involved in more strategic initiatives/decisions; start to lead and/or to lead more people; and, ultimately for some, this brings about career progression and change.
