EMBA Newsletter - July 2014

Greetings EMBA Alumni!

Class of 2014

The Executive MBA Class of 2014 graduates.

It’s been a busy two months since the last newsletter.

Please join me in welcoming Jeanette Henriques, our new classroom coordinator for both executive MBA programs. Jeanette brings 18 years of experience from the University of North Texas and is responsible for the administrative functions of both executive MBA programs. We’re very happy she is on our team.

On May 16, we held our own graduation ceremony for the Class of 2014 and the graduates are now part of our alumni network. We also held our family and friends reception, and many people attended. The JSOM graduation was held the following day, Saturday, May 17, and most members of the Class of 2014 also participated in that ceremony.
