“Being able to experience and learn business practices in another country is invaluable. These ASEBUSS EMBA students walked away from Home Depot and RentPath with unique and different perspectives.
Atlanta (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
Atlanta’s RentPath, the premier vertical search company for apartment and home renters, and The Home Depot®, the world’s largest home improvement retailer, recently hosted Executive MBA students from Kennesaw State University’s Michael J. Coles College of Business.
A key component of Michael J. Coles College of Business Program is its international emphasis, including a partnership with ASEBUSS, the largest MBA-only educational institution in Eastern Europe. The attendees of these corporate visits primarily included ASEBUSS students from Romania. Ken Greer, Vice President of Sales at Apartment Guide, is currently enrolled in the Coles Executive MBA program and acted as a host for their visit to RentPath.
“Presenting RentPath financial and business strategy to a group of executive students was a pleasure,” said Kim Payne, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of RentPath. “RentPath’s industry leading brands, including Apartment Guide and Rent.com provide consumers the information and tools they need to ease the pain of searching for a new apartment by leveraging cutting edge technology and the power of information. We are continually innovating new methods and technology to meet and exceed these demands. It was evident that this group of highly motivated Executive MBA students is forward thinking and shares our thirst for innovation. I hope we have the opportunity to work with them again in the future.”
Dr. Alison M. Keefe, Executive MBA Interim Director of Coles College of Business added, “Being able to experience and learn business practices in another country is invaluable. These ASEBUSS EMBA students walked away from Home Depot and RentPath with unique and different perspectives, which I suspect will be thoroughly discussed within their domestic companies. This is the heart and overall purpose of the Coles College of Business Executive MBA International Residency that has continued to flourish and grow for over 11 years.”
The Coles Executive MBA students visited RentPath and The Home Depot on Thursday, April 24th. On Friday April 25th until Sunday, April 27th the Romanian and American students worked together on International Capstone projects at Michael J. Coles College of Business.
