“What the EMBA taught me is that, regardless of the role that you hold in an organization, it’s all about redefining your value proposition in relation to the organization without ever losing sight of all the different stakeholders and of course, your end customer. Once you do that, it will allow you to truly add value, to have an impact, and to effectively become an agent of change.”
