What drives your decision of pursuing an EMBA?

Need a strong foundation in business. Come with a tech background and am great at execution but often lack an overall context that some of the SMs and PPED who are good at selling have. Also considering it’d be helpful if I decide to switch to industry. And Ofcourse for the brand and the network I’d have access to.

I made it out of kpmg and hopped over to MS and honestly so far I’m loving it. Also more black people in this space would really go a long way.
