Invest in Your Digital Leadership Capabilities
A culture of learning, growth and empowerment is the best way to ensure that you attract and retain talent with the confidence and insight to know how to manage and transform disruption in your industry. Smart companies view an EMBA program not only as an investment in leadership development, but also as a way to leverage a school’s vast talent pipeline and to learn about development in various fast-changing markets. An EMBA also provides students and alumni with a rich network of the latest research, case studies, insights and collaborators from across industry and academia.
What will my employee need from me to enrol in the EMBA in Digital Transformation program?
With the program structured around four residency modules, we expect you to allow your employee the scheduling flexibility to attend these short periods over the 14-month program. Each residency is 12 days in length (8 for Silicon Valley) and are spread apart by 3-4 months, allowing students to concentrate on studies while in class, and on work between modules.
What is the ROI for the company?
Beyond the value of an MBA degree itself, the nature of an EMBA’s collaborative learning environment means your employee will immediately gain insight, confidence and “digital capabilities” that will spur on new ideas and thoughtful growth from the senior faculty and industry professionals who are teaching in the program, and from fellow students in their cohort.
Your organization will benefit from EMBA group work on real-time digital transformation projects within modules, thereby bringing new ideas and potential solutions to problems. Through this process, your employee will also gain valuable insight into what others in industry are doing. Supplementing these activities will be cross-industry case studies brought to life by leading corporate executives.
Finally, your company will also benefit from an expanded network in Canada and in Silicon Valley, California.
