When the Admissions Team evaluates incoming MBA applicants, we are looking for students who demonstrate a combination of positive behavioral attributes; one of these is the ability to find creative and effective solutions to conventional problems.
The Enterprise Management track is designed to enhance this problem-solving skill by providing students with a comprehensive mindset for facing challenges in today’s business world. The EM track also allows students to put their ideas into practice through a variety of activities and projects, such as the four-day Hackathon where student teams compete to research, develop, and present a unique business solution to a panel of judges.
The EM track prepares students for career paths in large organizations in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors. Kenneth Young, MBA ’14, describes how the EM track led him to an opportunity for a full-time position at Nike:
To me, Enterprise Management is all about access. Access to new functions, access to new companies, and access to new ways of thinking. I was able to switch both my professional industry and function, and I owe that to the EM track. The EM track introduced me to Nike, which led me to a summer internship and now a full time position at the company. Nike was not on my radar prior to school, which really demonstrates the transformation that Action Learning can have on students during their MBA experience.
Congratulations to the class of 2014 EM Track graduates!
