Women in the Executive MBA: In Conversation With Judith Hoffmann
Judith Hoffmann started the Executive MBA Program at Kellogg-WHU in September 2016. At the start of her second year of the program, in November 2017, Judith and her husband welcomed twins. For Judith, using her maternity leave was the best time to study an EMBA – both professionally and personally. Six months before she graduated in October 2018, Judith spoke to us about her motivations behind pursuing an EMBA, her aims for the program, and what she’s taken from the classroom back into the workplace.
EMBA Class of 2018
