Director’s Message

Hello from Knoxville! It’s beginning to look and feel like Fall, and the season of tailgating has arrived. The program office recently returned from our international residence period in South America, and we now are busy getting ready for graduation in December. We’ve also started planning our 2013 international trip, which will take us to Singapore and Shanghai.

Please welcome two new faces to the EMBA program office. Anastasiya Loboda is our new program manager, responsible for managing our international seminar. She also is involved in student recruiting and marketing, as well as admissions. Melia Kendall is our new program coordinator; she runs the day-to-day operations. Read More >>
