With COVID-19 currently limiting travel, we thought it would be a good time to post an article about the great learning and networking opportunities at the most recent 2019 Executive MBA Conference.
Percept Research attended the Executive MBA Council annual conference in Orlando, Florida from October 13-16, 2019. Themed “Experience the Magic," the conference drew over 450 registrants from 152 schools and 26 countries. We are excited to share some of our experiences from the meeting.
Promising 2019 Management Education Insights
Approximately 85% of the EMBA programs in the council membership completed the 2019 Membership Program Survey, which is conducted by Percept Research. The Executive MBA Council includes more than 200 colleges and universities that administer 300+ programs in more than 30 countries worldwide.
This annual benchmarking survey revealed that member schools are receiving more applications than ever before with a 31.6% increase in applications received since 2015. The proportion of enrolled female EMBA students increased to 31.2% in 2019, the highest on record indicating a promising trend towards closing the gender gap.
