"Even before I joined IEM, the leadership helped me define and move into my dream job as a Disney engineer. Then being part of the program even helped me grow in the position with Disney as I took on new leadership roles and high visibility projects. But perhaps more importantly, IEM has helped inspire me (and even my wife) to pursue my entrepreneurial talents. "

trent lesley"I have experienced multiple impacts to my professional and personal career...but more so on the personal side. IEM has challenged myself, and even my wife, to dig deep into what I want to do for the next 40-ish years of my life. I am very blessed to be able to honestly say that I love my job, but I have definitely asked myself the question: 'Is there more?' If you’re just looking for a degree, this program is not for you. There are plenty of other universities that can provide you with that. If you’re looking for a program and a group of leaders that truly want to see you succeed and become more passionate about waking up in the morning and influencing the people around you, then you have hit the jackpot. IEM will provide you with the tools and resources to become a better leader, entrepreneur, and business professional. This is not just a degree...this is a lifestyle."
