"EMI was definitely one of the highlights of my time at Cornell. Being a fellow helped me satisfy that longstanding itch I have to stay informed about what goes on globally. But it did so more broadly than I would have ever expected. Conferences, competitions, webinars, courses, informal meetings with practitioners, annual reports, etc. helped expose me to anything from e-commerce in Nigeria, to the banking sector in Brazil, and from digital currencies to tech entrepreneurship across emerging markets."

Rodrigo Ley, MBA '23, EMI Fellow
