What Our Students Say

“My year in the program has been transformational. It’s been engaging and challenging. It’s been an opportunity for me to connect with other practitioners in my field, learn from them, and apply those skills in my current role.”

David McGill (EMBA-GSC, ‘22)
Technology Purchasing Manager, Pilot Travel Centers

“My knowledge of the industry has increased vastly. I now understand better why business decisions are made on the corporate level and at a global scale.”

“Peer engagement sets the program apart. I tried other programs. Most of them place too much emphasis on mathematics and statistics or rely too heavily on reading textbooks. Haslam’s program brings participants together, providing an interactive platform to discuss real-world scenarios.”
