  • Favorite Professors Of The ‘Best & Brightest’ EMBAs

To this day, I read company financials or watch CNBC not with a blank stare but an understanding of what is being discussed, and I think about Reena. It is truly a gift to be so brilliant yet teach complex subjects in a way that people can understand and learn from them.”
