The Executive MBA Program, offered by the Zicklin School of Business, is designed to provide mid- to upper-level managers with knowledge and understanding of cutting-edge theories and the necessary analytical skills to apply them to successfully operate in todays intensely competitive markets while coping with highly complex and fast-changing technologies. The program is also suitable for entrepreneurs seeking to manage the expansion and growth of their enterprises.

The most distinctive characteristic of the program is its integrated focus on strategy. It prepares students to develop and implement appropriate strategies that:

  • assess the intensity of competition in their chosen markets, identify specific markets or consumer needs that the company is uniquely suited to serve, and mobilize the companys resourcesphysical and intangibleto meet its strategic objectives. The operational goal is the creation of strategic fit between external competitive environment, a firms chosen strategy, and the resources available to the firm in implementing that strategy;

  • build competitive intensity in students through emphasis on entrepreneurship and calculated risk-taking in the marketplace;

  • develop a solid understanding and applied knowledge of functional aspects of business (e.g., finance, accounting, operations management, marketing, and human resource management) to enable the student to utilize these resources efficiently and intelligently and to direct their use toward implementation of a firms competitive strategy;

  • develop leadership skills that equip managers to guide and motivate workers and professional staff and build successful team efforts that are at the core of a smooth and efficiently running organization; and

  • sensitize managers to the need for creating a nurturing and supportive corporate cultureone that fosters a high level of ethical business conduct with regard to its internal and external constituencies.

The full-time program is designed for cohort groups of working executives. Classes are held once a week (primarily on Saturday with some Fridays) over six trimesters, each of thirteen weeks, during a period of two academic years. Students complete 20 courses (or 57 credits) over the six trimesters and an international study tour. Provisions are made for refresher workshops and tutorials preparatory to the start of the program.

The Executive MBA is offered in a modular format that focuses on different types of decisions and the context in which these decisions are made. The modules examine business organizations at different stages of their growth and development. The themes of these modules are:

  • The Entrepreneurial Enterprise
  • Growing the Mid-Cap Enterprise
  • Transforming the Enterprise
  • Strategy Formulation at the Enterprise Level
