 I have been so impressed by the diverse group of professionals in our cohort, from both public and private sectors. A sense of team spirit developed quickly and the knowledge sharing opportunity makes the program even more enriching.

 I love the tight bond that our cohort has formed in just three courses. While we come from highly diverse backgrounds, industries and political viewpoints, the EMPL program has brought us all together and provided us with an opportunity to value each other's viewpoints - I know that my classmates are friends for life!
