Kemmerer, who will begin her MBA at IESE after working for two full years, chose the Spanish school for its international focus and its emphasis on work experience.

"This program is designed for students committed to a challenging, international, fast-track into a management position," she says. "I recommend it with no hesitations to anyone who is looking to share their future with a wealth of like-minded individuals and a world-class institution."
