Mengert, who firm is based in based in Greensboro, but has a large presence in Charlotte and throughout the Carolinas, says, "The MDP is an opportunity for students to learn from managers who have put their Harvard Business School education to the test of the real business world." Professionals who have completed the course are recommending it as a program that "expanded their mind and way of thinking, forced them to think critically, and to look at issues from a higher level and broader viewpoint."  

Mengert and AMG manages community associations across the Carolinas. MDP students come from manufacturing and service organizations, profit and non-profit, as well as the legal and medical profession. Some are considering an MBA; others already have advanced degrees. All are looking for the broadening experience that a case study course offers.  

Over fifty local companies have sent executives to the program, including Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Carolina CAT, CC. Dickson Co., Crescent Communities Realty, Crosland Commercial, Duke Energy, Microsoft, National Gypsum, Pfizer, RBC, Springs Industries, and TIAA-CREF.

After paying the expenses of the program, the balance of the proceeds are donated to local charities. The Harvard Business School Alumni Association of Charlotte has donated $350,000 over the years to local non-profits in Charlotte including A Child’s Place, Catherine’s House, Buddy Kemp Caring House, Charlotte Rescue Mission, Christian Adoption Services, The Crisis Assistance Ministry, Jacob's Ladder Job Center, Room at the Inn, Salvation Army, Emergency Shelter, Seed Programs, Inc., Thompson Child & Family Focus and Queen’s University.
