Executive MBA 2009
VP, Product Development
I couldn’t quite figure out why we had to go to the middle of nowhere for the first week of class until I experienced it. Now I can’t imagine a more effective way for us to kick off the program. In addition, I was blown away by the quality of the professors. We already knew they had impeccable credentials but that doesn’t always correlate to being an engaging instructor. All of them were tremendous.

The experience at New Harmony was a tremendous way to jump-start the Executive MBA program and prepare me for the next two years. By removing the distractions of technology, it provided the opportunity to focus not only on the new material we were introduced to but also on building relationships with my classmates that have lasted and will continue well into the future. The Week-in-Residence also eased me into returning to a school setting again, including taking notes at lectures, working in a group and preparing for class the next day.

I believe that the New Harmony experience is a key part of what makes Owen unique. The chance to spend a week with your classmates out of the mainstream of life gives you an opportunity to not only get back into the mode of being a student again, but to develop those bonds with your classmates that will help you succeed in the EMBA program. New Harmony is where your unique class identity takes shape and where your class legends are born.
