For business school students, May is an important month since it marks the end of the semester and for some students the beginning of post-MBA life. May is also a time where people are inspired by the words of graduation speeches. Here are some business school speeches that are up there with Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford commencement speech. While business school graduation season is over, these MBA graduation speeches can still provide you with inspiration and motivation as you apply for your MBA.
International EMBA candidates have another MBA option to consider now that Columbia has just announced their new EMBA-Americas programs. Unlike most EMBA programs that have a local focus, Columbia Business School's new EMBA-Americas program is trying to attract business leaders from all over the U.S., Canada and Latin America. Not only does Columbia's new program demonstrate the increasing amount of international MBA programs, it also shows how more top business schools are trying to attract students beyond their local market. While the Columbia EMBA-Americas program may not be the first of its kind, it is the first Americas EMBA program with a Silicon Valley focus.
