Edem Akan

Director, SMCI

Edem Akan says the biggest lessons she learned in the Sobey EMBA program were to be flexible and appreciate diversity in opinions.

Moving to an exclusively remote learning model due to the COVID-19 pandemic was challenging but a real life example of how to adapt. With the EMBA under her belt, she looks forward to “leading more functionally diverse teams.”

When asked what aspects of her EMBA experience she is most proud of, Edem says it’s “hard to pick just one.” She cites “great instructors and a phenomenal cohort.”
