    The Kellogg-WHU EMBA was an ambition come true. The powerful combination of one of the top German business schools, WHU, with a European destination and the Kellogg brand was an easy decision to make. Three years have now passed since completing the EMBA and, as a recent father for the second time, as well as a promotion to Vice-President of Marriott for planning new hotels in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), and president of the Kellogg/Northwestern alumni club in Switzerland, I still live the Kellogg-WHU ethos. I am fortunate to travel widely with my job and meet with alumni in many countries and I am convinced that the global network and mutual respect which the Kellogg-WHU EMBA creates, allows us all to make a greater contribution to our companies, society and to each other.
