"It is important that the diversity in the program, in all aspects, contributes increasingly to open participants’ horizons "
Marina Kundu, Director of graduate programs in Executive Education
The Executive MBA welcomed last week its One-Day-a-Week promotion. Nearly 38% of this class is female, making its diversity exceptional.
The objective of the HEC EMBA is to recruit men and women managers and executives who are mid-life professionals determined to accelerate their careers.
Marina Kundu, Director of graduate programs in Executive Education, says that the increase in the number of women in the program contributes to its diversity: "Women make up this year in the track One-Day-a-Week nearly 38%; in 2008 it was 19%. For all EMBA promotions this year, we have participants representing 49 nationalities. It is important that the diversity in the program, in all aspects, contributes increasingly to opening participants’ horizons, enhancing their experience at HEC. "
It is very important to encourage women to apply and to invest in this type of prestigious program. The teaching staff of the EMBA ensures that participants' contributions, both as managers as well as their personal characteristics, enriches the overall experience shared by the group.
Emma O'Carroll comes from the world of luxury and fashion. Emma is also joining the EMBA promotion One-Day-a-Week. Her choice to return to school and choose the appropriate program to carry out her professional project, a longtime in development, was not a decision taken lightly, "I need to grow personally and professionally. I have ambitions and I needed this HEC step to launch my new company project in the in luxury sector. It is a difficult decision to sit on the school benches and refuse an enticing job offer. Improvement and personal growth is a never ending process with no age limits."
