Latest EMBA Program Cohort on Campus for Orientation

By MC1 Lewis Hunsaker

New Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) students from the Space and Naval Warfare (SPAWAR) Systems Center Charleston and Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Panama City Division, are pictured in front of the Roman Plunge Reflecting Pool, Feb. 23. This marks the first time that students from these Navy commands are participating in the EMBA program.

"It's always good to see different groups taking part in the EMBA program, especially since everyone brings a different perspective and level of experience to the program," said EMBA Program Director retired Navy Cmdr. Bill Hatch.

The 24-month distance learning program helps Department of Navy officers and senior civilians advance their skills in the unique realm of defense management, with coursework capitalizing on the current managerial and leadership experience of program participants.

"I really think the EMBA program will help Panama City with new ideas and insights into processes, program management, and how we conduct business," said Jonathan Armstrong from the Panama City cohort. "A few years ago, I started looking into the EMBA program after I received positive information from other Naval Surface Warfare Centers that had gone through the program."

The EMBA program takes a blended approach to student learning, and emphasizes the value of working in groups of five or six individuals based out of the same geographical area to enrich the learning experience.
