“The core driver of EDGE’s success is in the program’s uncanny ability to connect globally minded professionals in very meaningful ways.  A small sampling of such engaging experiences include: negotiation exercises under Ron Shapiro’s instruction; exploring Under Armour’s workplace strategy in action; diving into the complexities of McCormick’s supply chain; discussing cross cultural relations as it relates to current events both at home and abroad; exploring marketing implications of virtual reality with Discovery Communications’ Head of Creative and simply learning how to make proper Italian pasta (and drink wine) while also being exposed to the horse breading industry at an overnight retreat to the famed Winbak Farm.  The experience could be likened to an elite MBA concentration in international business (without the exams & essays), only your classmates are active international business executives here in Baltimore and your instructors are successful, mostly local practitioners varied across industry and expertise.  Coming out of this program, I have a new set of relationships to sound off ideas, to discuss problems and share in successes.  A truly worthwhile experience if you are looking to both enrich your global business acumen and make connections with others who share some of your passions and can inspire you to elevate your game.”
