EMBA – Cali Class of 2014

“The EMBA is an excellent program – perhaps the best, in terms of content, I had explored in Colombia. The experience is enriching to take in English. Sharing with excellent teachers, who bring unmatched professionalism, and having colleagues from different disciplines and professional backgrounds make it that much better. Each class contributes to what we are practicing professionally. The program ensures an optimal classroom environment in which students can reach their maximum potential. The appropriate selection of students generates solidarity and support amongst themselves in different topics and class assignments. The program has shown me how to look at companies and their environments from different perspectives whether financial, strategic, operational or administrative. It has also shown how these businesses are connected and move in the world; all in a simple and practical manner. It is a complete overview of the business world. The five days of study per month enrich life itself significantly.”

“For me, being a foreigner, this experience has been more than I could have ever imagined. From the very beginning my classmates welcomed me with open arms. Going through a program like this with the same group of people you get to know them pretty well. I know that I will take life-long relationships away from this experience. The professors are all very knowledgeable and have a wealth of experience. They are very patient and understand that students are learning in a second language. Being able to do an MBA in another country has allowed me to expand my business mind and think more on a global level. More than anything what I will take away from this experience is the camaraderie with my classmates and the sharing of information and experiences between our cultures. One of my classmates said to me that he never thought he would have this much fun doing an MBA and I completely agree!”

EMBA-Cali Class of 2014

“Spending a few days per month with high level professors and top executives as classmates creates the most exiting studying experience that I‘ve ever had! With this group, I am able to engage in very rich classroom discussions that are very useful to my own business development. The convenient format allows for very little time out of the office. And, the possibility to take courses in other cities like Philadelphia, Paris and Singapore opens an opportunity to learn about different cultures and ways of doing business. I found this program to be the best option for me in Colombia for my MBA degree.”

“With this program you will learn, share and discuss a wide variety of business topics inside a board of directors environment. These topics range from the basics of accounting and statistics to complex financial instruments and leadership managing. You will be satisfied with the quality of preparation for each course done by the professors and you will be challenged with debating cases on new and sometimes unfamiliar issues creating a rewarding and invigorating learning experience with your peers. ”

“The way I see and interact with the world of business has improved tremendously since I started my MBA. Besides learning from great professors, the vast experience of my colleagues adds a tremendous value to my career and helps me understand and adapt different points of view from very highly ranked professionals. Managing a business and going to school seemed like a very difficult task to do at first; however, the Fox and PUJ Executive MBE program made it easier because of the convenient schedule. The five day per month immersion helped a lot when I had to make the decision between programs.”

“I’m very excited to be a part of this cohort. I decided to do the EMBA because, as an engineer, it is a great opportunity to improve my management skills, complement my technical background, and also to move up within my organization. The program in Cali has several big advantages: the 5-days immersion is ideal for work; it offers you an opportunity to share and exchange ideas with managers of different areas and sectors and use your second language; it allows you to earn a double degree and be taught by international faculty – a combination which makes this the perfect complement for professional development.”

“My experience with the EMBA program has been very enlightening, particularly because I have the opportunity to learn from international teachers with worldwide experience. This makes classes even more interesting. It is also provides a unique chance to share with other students whose different points of view enrich every lesson. The program allows me to explore excellent reading material and case studies which also enrich my second language skills.”

“When I was looking for an MBA program, I had to evaluate many things. I wanted to get international exposure, but also keep working in the oil and gas industry where I have been for the last 12 years. When I found the Fox and PUJ Executive MBA program, I had no doubt that this program served all of my needs. Staying in my country and in my job is a great advantage – many things happen every day in the local/global industry and it is therefore quite important to be there. This program allows me to be a Fox and PUJ student at the same time with all of the benefits – the best being that I will earn a Fox degree without leaving my country. This was the best business decision for me: an affordable, world-class education, a superb campus and academic facilities, exceptional professors and friendly Fox and PUJ administrative staff.”
