Greetings Global Leadership EMBA Alumni!

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.
