Henrietta Pepper, CEO of the pepper group, ltd. (class of 2019) shares her experience with the UK-UofL Executive MBA and how it is making a direct impact. 

What has been your most valuable experience in the UK-UofL Executive MBA program to date?

"The most valuable experience in the EMBA program to date has been the relationships I have built with my cohort colleagues including the UofL and UK faculty. The people I've connected with have brought their individual experience and expertise to the program which has made it an authentic and well-rounded learning environment."

What made you decide to pursue your MBA and why the UK-UofL Executive MBA specifically?

"I pursued my MBA with the long-term goal of teaching, in some capacity, at the graduate level. I valued the fact that the UK-UofL EMBA was a statewide program involving two universities and a myriad participants from across Kentucky. The international trip was a unique learning opportunity built into the program. Being able to schedule every other weekend and the summer off was beneficial in scheduling both work and family commitments."

How has your academic experience translated into your professional role?

"We recently went through a Merger/Acquisition with our firm. As CEO, garnering a deeper understanding of the financials, business strategies and leadership roles involved in that process was truly valuable in transitioning the business to its new state."
