Absolute EMS, Inc., an award-winning EMS provider of turnkey and consignment manufacturing services, is pleased to announce that the Loyola Marymount University (LMU) EMBA students visited its facility in Santa Clara on Wednesday, June 10, 2022. The visit was part of the University’s weeklong Business Excellence study on managing innovation in organizations.
The students study how organizations gain competitive advantage through the way they manage innovation (services, processes, marketing, management systems, technology and products). As the practicum for the course, the one-week trip is planned to visit organizations noted for managing innovation.
The trip starts out in Sacramento to gain perspective of the business climate in California. Then the students visit Silicon Valley to look at specific examples of innovation management. The goal in visiting companies is to gain insights on how they manage the innovation/creative process (hiring, training, organization, processes, systems, etc.). In addition to Absolute EMS, the students visit Google, Dell and other tech companies.
Robert Clark, PhD, Adjunct Professor – LMU EMBA, stated, “It was great seeing how a smaller company, like Absolute EMS, has built a culture of innovation. This showed not only in their facilities, but also in the atmosphere of pride, integrity and customer service that we experienced while touring the Absolute EMS facility and speaking with Doug Dow and Jayne Carthy.”
The EMBA Program at Loyola Marymount University ranks 6th in the West and 24th in the nation by Bloomberg Businessweek. LMU is a top U.S. business school that values academics, personal growth and professional achievement.
