Diversity and Florida's executive MBA students
This year's cohort of students highlights the diversity at EMBA programs at Florida universities.
Traditionally, most EMBA students were climbing the corporate ladder, and their companies paid their tuitions. Some still follow that model, but cohorts in Florida this year are far more diverse, with small-business owners, sales managers, engineers, financial consultants, physicians, nonprofit directors, logistics specialists, sports industry professionals, military veterans and even a fighter pilot. Most of the students interviewed for this article are paying all or most of the tab themselves.
