  • Favorite Professors Of The ‘Best & Brightest’ EMBAs

    Georgetown’s Ellen Davis, for example, credits Reena Aggarwal with teaching her how to read — the financial section at least. “I am not a numbers person, and was very apprehensive to take Finance,” Davis admits. “To my surprise, she was able to help me — and many of my other numbers-challenged cohort members — not only learn finance, but apply it.

It is truly a gift to be so brilliant yet teach complex subjects in a way that people can understand and learn from them.”
