Program Description:

Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA)


This is for Cohort 17 students only

Executives may earn an MBA from a program accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) in 17 months, while expanding their professional network and acquiring valuable skills to advance their careers.

The EMBA is the same degree as the Craig School of Business traditional MBA program, requiring 36 units. Executive MBA students enjoy flexibility and personal attention, and are taught by top professors from the Craig School who focus on real world applications. Through team-based learning, students develop a close network with their colleagues, and learn to analyze complex problems as well as deal with strategic issues. The program accommodates the busy executive using a cohort system and a preset course schedule with most classes meeting on Saturdays. This Executive MBA program provides a broad business curriculum that prepares the graduate for the competitive global community, including a culminating experience in a foreign country.

Among a small cohort of established colleagues, candidates learn advanced practices in management, marketing, finance, human resources and entrepreneurship. The fast-paced atmosphere provides curriculum immediately applicable in everyday business situations. By working together closely throughout the intensive program, students often forge relationships that can pay dividends well into the future.

This degree program is designed for those with a minimum of ten years of work experience and at least three years in a managerial or professional position.

Candidates are required to attend two and one-half weeks of intensive classes (Wednesday to Friday 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to noon) at the start of the program in order to acquire the foundation materials for the degree.

One of the many highlights of this EMBA will be a 10-day international trip (included in the tuition fee) to complement the international business course in the program.

Since the EMBA is designed to suit candidates with a minimum of ten years of work experience with at least three years in a managerial or professional capacity, the GMAT (graduate entrance exam to business schools) requirement will be waived for executive applicants. A GPA of 2.5 or higher is required to be admitted, but participants must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher to graduate.
