The Executive MBA class 22 arrives to the warm reception of the University of Rochester
In the second week of June, the students of Class 22 made their way via New York, Toronto and Massachusetts to begin their summer program in Rochester. Greeted by the University of Rochester staff and some of their fellow MBA students, the scene was set for a successful start.

The check-in at the Rustic Village Apartments, enrollment in the Summer Program and the University of Rochester campus tour were just a few of the highlights managed for the students arriving from Switzerland. Many of the students were experiencing their very first study abroad, whereas others were relishing the experience of returning to campus life. Being a student never became so apparent until the moment the students forged their way to the Simon Business School entrance.
The first week remained eventful in multiple facets. As if starting a summer program at the Simon Business School was not enough, the week opened with two classes, one engagement and a wedding. Although rumor has it that previous EMBA classes have been blessed with an engagement, none have topped it with an actual wedding. Shannon Piehler topped off the first week of Information Management and Capital Markets with tying the knot while Joerg planned and executed his engagement. It was never a dull moment for the Class of 22.
