The Executive MBA is an 18-month accelerated program offering classes on Saturdays only.
The EMBA curriculum combines business know-how with skills to meet the challenges of technology driven change to prepare a new generation of business leaders.
The EMBA Experience: Immersion, Application, Integration
The lock step, accelerated delivery of the EMBA curriculum provides a unique, value-added experience geared to the needs of high potential managers and professionals.
Immersion: Working with a cohort of students that offers a breadth and depth of business experience in an accelerated mode of delivery facilitates engagement in courses. As the program unfolds, students become increasingly skilled at rapidly grasping and applying key management concepts.
Application: Directed study and work-related projects ensure that course knowledge translates directly to the workplace while the course is in session. Students receive feedback from each other and from their instructors about how business concepts can be applied to their work setting and their career interests.
Integration: The EMBA provides several capstone experiences where themes from related courses are synthesized and integrated. For example, the international study tour in the Global Competitiveness course contrasts American management strategies and practices with those in different parts of the world. This invaluable experience is "globalization" first hand - an encounter that brings students in contact with leaders in the areas of business-government relations. Similarly, marketing, finance, and innovation management are linked in our Convention, Creativity and Innovation course as students work to understand how technology creates value with new products and services.
The EMBA Curriculum covers four thematic areas:
- Creativity and Innovation
- Business-Government Relations
