“ When I first started at Scheller, I was a mid-level manager with huge ambitions. Going to Scheller gave me the confidence to go to the next level and the level beyond that. The faculty, staff, the program, and the international aspect changed me forever. It gave me confidence and a perspective that made me into who I am today.”

“ The knowledge and network that come from this program are invaluable if you are looking to make a change, boost your confidence, expand your skillset, or even just increase your job security. I left the program with a fresh perspective and confidence in my current role, as well as a feeling of being more than qualified to be the best candidate for just about any job posting I happen to come across. This is a feeling that you cannot put a price tag on.”
Blake Gordon, Executive MBA ‘21 Director of Innovation, Georgia-Pacific LLC
“ Some of the most rewarding aspects of the Executive MBA program came from connecting with my classmates in more relaxed settings and taking charge of my own career progression. I made the effort to attend networking and career development functions, and took advantage of career counseling services, such as resume review and interview preparation.”

“ The Management of Technology specialization offered by Scheller stood out as an opportunity not found in the plethora of Executive MBA programs available. The program is rigorous, and the professors teach at a high level. Based on conversations with students from other programs, I’ve discovered that the professional support program is also deeper and more personalized.”
