This year's Sharpen the Saw may look a little different than before, but it's still the perfect opportunity to reconnect with classmates, faculty, staff, other EMBA alumni, and guests at the annual professional development event. This year we are excited to bring you not one, but FIVE days of programing!

Join us March 22th - 26th from 12:00-1:00pm EST and hear from new speakers each day. Can't make it live to every session? Register and you'll have access to each of the recordings available to watch at your convenience. Registration this year is free!

As always, the goal of this annual event is to provide EMBA alumni and guests the opportunity to connect and gain new perspectives for your personal and professional lives. 

Here's what we have in store for you this year so far:

Jonathan Gruber, Author of Jump-Starting America: How Breakthrough Science Can Revive Economic Growth and the American Dream - Giving us a glimpse into one of the top business books of 2019, find out why Rochester is the best place to lead this! Interviewed with Bruce Peters
