Study Groups

Study groups are an important part of the Executive MBA Program. To give you an idea of whom you might find in your study group, we've supplied some recent examples.

Sample Local Study Group

This example, from the London campus, included:

  • A managing director of Matterhorn 349 from Germany
  • A director of AOL Europe from England
  • A vice president of finance from the Daniel Swarovski Corporation who lives in Italy
  • The head of Business Banking at Barclays in Kenya
  • The director of Corporate Banking at Citigroup in England
  • A partner at Ward Howell, an executive search firm, from Russia

Sample International Study Group

International Study Groups are formed during the Executive MBA Kick-off Week and will meet during the international sessions when all three programs convene. A group generally has two members from each campus. For example, a previous international study group included:

  • An IT director at DFS Venture, a Hong Kong-based company that owns luxury shopping gallerias in cosmopolitan and resort locations throughout Asia-Pacific
  • The head of chemicals for the Economic Development Board in Singapore
  • A vice president of Asia Financial Holdings, an investment holding company involved in banking, insurance, and investment services, who is based in Dubai
  • The chairman of Freedom Works, a Russian company
  • A director of D & R Technology from the US
  • The associate general counsel of the Progressive Group of Insurance Companies, a US company
