EMBA Recruitment

Hello Terry EMBA students and alumni,

I wanted to drop you a note and let you know that we have started recruiting our next class that will begin in the fall. Many of you have referred candidates to the program over the years which we greatly appreciate! A satisfied EMBA graduate is the best form of advertising so we are always grateful when you help us promote the program to your friends and colleagues. Our next two information sessions are Thursday, March 5, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in Buckhead and Saturday, April 25, from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. in Buckhead - we encourage all interested candidates to attend one of the sessions so we can meet them in person and showcase our exceptional facilities. We are also happy to coordinate an information session at your company location if you believe you have several potential candidates that would be interested. If you can introduce me to the appropriate company contacts to coordinate such an event, I can take it from there. You are also welcome to refer any prospects to me personally and I am happy to chat with them and answer any questions they may have.

Again, thanks for all you do to support the Terry EMBA program. We look forward to another successful recruiting season with your involvement. Feel free to drop me a note if you have any questions or would like to get more involved with our recruitment efforts.
