UPEI MBA graduate Craig Dauphinee“The EMBA program at UPEI gave me the skills, tools, and professional networking to advance my business. The program's evidence-based approach provided analytical knowledge to help me be successful. Returning to school while working full time required dedication and hard work; however, I would do it all over again!”

UPEI MBA graduate Gordon MacKay“It was a challenge to return to school after being in the workforce for 32 years. Balancing the EMBA course load and my law practice was difficult at times; however, the cohort structure of the program meant I got lots of support in getting the job done. The evidence-based approach to business management taught in the program aligns nicely with the practice of law.”

Personally, I am able to balance my education with work and family, and professionally, the program arms me with the insight to change the way I think and make decisions. I would strongly recommend the EMBA program for those who aspire to lead and be more innovative within their organization.”

UPEI MBA graduate Rachel Clark McDearmid“In 2012, my position was affected by budget cuts. Suddenly, I was unemployed so I took the opportunity to refresh and pursue further education. UPEI’s EMBA program taught me to question more and how to find answers; afforded me rare insights into business and leadership; and it put me in the company of extraordinarily talented people.”
