EMIB Graduate - Boeing Defense, Space, and Security
The major benefit that the Executive Masters of International Business courses offer is that they are all encompassing for the applications that you are asking about. From a trade negotiations and procurement perspective, I am not sure that there is a class that is being offered that you would not utilize in these fields. I went into my first class, which was a deep-dive into accounting, with the notion that as an Inventory Specialist with Nike, I would not be in a position to use the lessons from that course. However, just before the first semester started, I made a career change at the suggestion from my mentor at the time, and my perspective could not have been more wrong. As a new Purchasing Manager, I was able to evaluate my suppliers based on their financial data and their ability to support my contracts. Now that I have made another career change as a Procurement Agent for Boeing, I use the lessons from the EMIB program even more. I have to scrutinize my suppliers in even further detail than I have previously done because of our customer requirements.
