What EMI Means to Attendees and Graduates

I completed both EMI and PMI, along with many TRSA educational and leadership groups. Attending these programs allows you to take a step back from daily-demand activities to learn at a higher level, not only in the classroom, but through relationships off campus. – Peter Brown, business development, Mickey’s Linen

EMI has been an excellent experience for me both personally and professionally. I have developed great relationships with my classmates and learned the skills to be a better manager and person.  – Ryan Kelley, CPLM, manager, applications engineering, Pellerin Milnor Corp.
