Paul Ingram

Paul Ingram is Kravis Professor of Business at Columbia Business School and has taught EMBA-Global students since the programme was established in 2001. He has consulted on issues of organisational design and strategy to leading finance, health care and consumer products companies, and has held visiting professorships at Tel Aviv University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and the University of Toronto.

"A lot of my research is on how professional networks affect career and organisational outcomes and one of the strengths of a good network is diversity and reach. With programmes like EMBA-Global, you're connecting with people from all over the world. In terms of access to ideas and opportunities, there's no better way to expand a network. Students constantly tell me about new projects and job opportunities that were the result of relationships built in class.

"Understanding leadership and management in different cultural contexts is one of the major challenges for emerging leaders today. Since EMBA-Global students are actually working in these other environments, they're bringing a rich knowledge of what works in a different culture - and what it means to go from Europe to the US or from Europe to Asia with a business, idea or product - in a way that really can't be taught.

"From my perspective, EMBA-Global students make up the best MBA classroom in the world. The participants are a very accomplished, diverse and sophisticated set of students who learn from each other and build a worldwide network in the process of earning their MBAs."
