Welcome to the EMBA community!

The EMBA Alumni Association partnership strives to provide value and strengthen the network among Executive MBA Alumni and current students. The EMBA program has reached a high level of local and national distinction and credibility. This September, we will welcome our 22nd cohort.

By joining the EMBA Alumni Association partnership, you will become a member of the Executive MBA alumni network of over 500, and join the ranks of more than 125,000 SDSU graduates. Most EMBA Alumni remain in San Diego post-graduation and are valuable professional and personal resources for the participants during the program and after graduation. An array of industries is represented through our alumni and current student roster; such companies include Qualcomm, Hamilton Sundstrand, SDG&E, Scripps Health, and Goodrich Aerostructures.

EMBA alumni participate in a variety of program activities; we hold multiple social, networking and educational events throughout the year. By joining the partnership, you will have access to these events, plus an array of other benefits.
