It’s Half-Time, Global Citizens

Three formal assignments, two exams, and one entrepreneurship project pitch later (since my last blog); EMBAS16 has finally finished all our core classes. We are now at the half-time mark of our EMBA journey. Unlike the Super Bowl half-time show in American football, there are no superstars dancing on stage with fireworks in the background. […]

Leadership Requires Evolution

In module two of EMBA S16, we began to explore various leadership styles. One theme which emerged from our discussion is that different leadership styles are effective in different contexts.

An incredible and life-changing journey for us all

Oxford EMBA 16 began on September 11th, 2016, the fifteenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. As a New Yorker, it was an emotional Sunday morning for me.
