"By repeatedly putting us in real-life scenarios and making almost all of the projects team-based, our professors in The University of Toledo executive M.B.A. program challenged us to learn how to work together as a team. I was impressed that our professors didn’t have to rely on textbooks to teach us important lessons; they drew from their own professional experiences in the business world. One of the greatest gifts I received from my E.M.B.A. was the extraordinary people I had the opportunity to meet and interact with on a daily basis. I now have this amazing network of friends and colleagues that I can depend on for both personal and professional issues."
