In the festive ambience of the Electoral Palace in Koblenz, 43 participants of the Kellogg-WHU Executive MBA Program enjoyed their graduation ceremony on Friday. A total of 48 participants from different cohorts graduated this year. After two years of hard work, completed while maintaining their professional careers, they have now received their well-deserved recognition from the leading international EMBA network of the Illinois-based Kellogg School of Management. "In times of economic uncertainty and crisis, the skills you have acquired in the EMBA program will help you to better master the challenges you face as managers," said Professor Christian Andres, Dean of WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management, during his speech in recognition of the graduates' achievements.
On behalf of the Kellogg network, Professor Thomas F. O'Toole, Associate Dean for Executive Programs at Northwestern University (Evanston, USA), conveyed his congratulations to the alumni via video message. He praised WHU as one of the oldest and most important partners in the international Kellogg network. Likewise, Professor Jürgen Weigand, Associate Dean Post-Experience Programs at WHU, and Hanne Mai, Program Director EMBA, congratulated the alumni on their outstanding achievement and thanked the entire EMBA team for their incredible show of commitment.
