In Their Words
The Kroger Co.
This is an intensive immersion into the industry that covers all the main trends, provides exposure to the key financial tools universal to business performance and strategy. The business simulation is intense, competitive, fun and a great learning experience.
Emerging Leaders Program is an unbelievable course system tailored to the young leaders of our industry. It had been extremely rewarding not only with content learning, but also networking opportunities. I strongly recommend for anyone looking to forward their career in this complex industry.
The relationships we made during this week wouldn’t be possible to make anywhere else. Really I can’t think about a place where you can get to know people from such different backgrounds. What we learn changed the way you see the industry and the learnings will last a lifetime.
