Watch Video: EMBA Smith Faculty

Entering an executive education program, you’d expect your teachers to be leaders in their respective fields—foremost theorists, authors, ground-breaking researchers. You’d expect your teachers to be as comfortable in the boardroom as in the classroom—to be able to draw from a vast knowledge of personal experience as consultants to major corporations.

Consistently ranked in the top 10 by Businessweek andFinancial Times, Smith faculty are leaders in their fields and recognized internationally for their contributions to business scholarship and practice. Many serve as consultants or have significant international experience working for leading institutions, corporations, government and multilateral agencies. When not in the front of your classroom, you’ll find Smith teachers working by your side, facilitating teams and serving as mentors. Smith faculty relish the exchange of ideas and the excitement of teaching experienced professionals like you.

World-class faculty teaching world-class students—that is the heart of the Smith EMBA academic experience.
