Modular Executive MBA, 2005

Marvin Ellison

President and CEO, Lowe's Companies, Inc.


Ellison rose up the ranks in Target before moving to Home Depot, where he was instrumental in cleaning up the supply chain. Described by Fortune as “the CEO Who’s Reinventing JCPenney,” Ellison has made it his practice to be in touch with the people on the front line, in stores. In 2018, Lowe's announced that Ellison would assume the role of President & CEO.

Ellison speaks well of his Modular MBA for Executives experience. "Obtaining my Executive MBA from Goizueta Business School has been a tremendous benefit to my career. The program’s curriculum has enabled me to enhance my business acumen in the fields of finance, marketing, and strategic planning. At the same time, it allowed me to learn invaluable insights from my fellow classmates who are among some of today’s finest business leaders."

"The modular format is a perfect fit to an executive with a demanding schedule like mine. Only now am I beginning to fully realize how much my EMBA will impact my success – not only in my career, but in my life."
