As co-founder and vice-president of Coady Diemar Partners, a boutique investment bank, New York-based Scott Estill is no novice at finance. By 2007, having worked in the financial sector, he felt the time had come to develop his professional knowledge.
He opted for the Columbia/London Business School Global EMBA, in part because of the location. “Being in two of the worlds’ business capitals is very helpful. [Having] access to professionals, top-flight companies and internal programmes…is a strong suit.” The flexibility to continue working and balance his family life was also important.
Mr Estill is particularly impressed by the other participants. “The breadth and depth of my classmates is really unbelievable. I always heard that the calibre of your classmates is vital but did not understand or appreciate the power of this until joining the Global EMBA program.”
