"I chose UB’s EMBA program due to the flexible and convenient schedule it offers as well as the level of professional experience of the class. The format has allowed me to pursue my MBA while working full time and still maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Everything I learned in the classroom on Friday and Saturday, I was then able to apply it at work first thing Monday morning. It has been very rewarding for me personally and has given me the confidence to take on more leadership roles within my organization."
