The Bombay Times shared the news today on page three: “EMBA students celebrate convocation ceremony in style,” complete with a photo of the 20 graduates in “batch 2” of the program. The newspaper reported on the celebration of a new class from the only Executive MBA program in the world to confer a degree from both an Indian and an American university.

“The program is apt for those looking to expand their careers along with an international alumni pool of thought leaders,” the Times reported. “The ceremony witnessed big names from India and across the globe.”

WashU Chancellor Mark Wrighton traveled to India with Olin Dean Mark P. Taylor, Dorothy Kittner (assistant dean and director of corporate relations), Jessica Martin (senior associate dean and chief of staff), and Professor Kurt Dirks (Bank of America Professor of Managerial Leadership and co-director of the Bauer Leadership Center).
