The Executive MBA program is a 48-credit program designed to meet the needs of experienced professionals who are ready to take their careers to the next level. The program builds on students’ professional experiences by helping them master the fundamentals of business as well as develop functional knowledge in the core business disciplines of marketing, finance, accounting, information systems, operations management, and leadership. Building on that foundation, students take advanced courses in entrepreneurship, strategy, business law and ethics, international management, and sustainability.
Key themes of the program include a focus on:
- Instant ROI, or return on investment, so that students can learn a new concept on Saturday and apply it on Monday;
- Leadership development to help students prepare for the challenges of leadership;
- Ethical decision making to help students recognize ethical dilemmas and how to think clearly and thoughtfully about ways to confront them; and
- Environmental sustainability to help students think strategically about the environmental and social challenges facing all organizations today, including ways to help their companies make sustainability a core business strategy.
- 5-7 years of professional/managerial experience (generally this experience should be post-undergraduate)
- an undergraduate degree from an accredited university or foreign equivalent
- appropriate quantitative skills (acquired via academic training or professional experience, or demonstrated via a GMAT/GRE score or our in-house Admissions Test)
