ATLANTA –Chris Hilario has been appointed director of the Executive MBA (EMBA) program at Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business. He brings more than eight years of higher education experience to the position.
Hilario most recently was director of Evening MBA admissions and recruitment at the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business. Prior to that, he worked at Texas A&M University in student recruitment and admissions for the Dallas-Fort Worth region.
“Chris possesses an in-depth knowledge of the MBA market for working professionals in Atlanta,” said Brian Jennings, associate dean of graduate programs and executive education at Robinson. “He has a strong track record of analytical decision making and spurring innovative enhancements that propel enrollment growth.”
At Robinson, Hilario will help drive the program’s continued growth and success, which has consistently been ranked one of the top EMBA programs in the region. It holds the No. 7 position among U.S.-based programs and 23rd worldwide, according to 2022 rankings from CEO Magazine. The 17-month program, taught at the Georgia State University Buckhead Center, broadens mid-to senior-level managers’ understanding of global business and strengthens their professional networks. The program format (every other weekend) allows participants to earn an MBA while maintaining their careers. It culminates in an international business residency and consulting project, most recently in South Africa, where students meet with business leaders from around the world.
Hilario holds a B.S. in biological sciences from Louisiana State University and an MBA from Texas Christian University’s Neeley School of Business.
