DeGroote’s Executive MBA in Digital Transformation (EMBA) is ideal for busy professionals and is unique in its content and delivery. The EMBA offers a one-of-a-kind blended learning experience, with both online and face-to-face courses. The Silicon Valley module is the highlight of the program, as it allows students to interact with entrepreneurs and venture capitalists and benefit from Stanford University resources. As an EMBA student, you experience a diversity of thoughts and ideas, interact with fun-loving people, enjoy support from devoted faculty, and have access to McMaster and DeGroote’s powerful networks.

EMBA courses challenge students’ personal and professional abilities to bring out the best in them. I found the design thinking and transformational learning experience components very useful. They helped me think differently in both personal and professional settings. I’ve leveraged the tools provided through the EMBA program to consistently exceed the expectations of my peers, leaders, and customers.

At the start of the program, I was thinking about where I want to be. After going through three modules, my approach has transformed into what I can do. The application of valuable new skills into my workplace has led to very positive outcomes, including recently receiving the Homer Award for excellent customer service from the President of The Home Depot Canada.
