Executive MBA


Rigorous, relevant and fast-paced curriculum

The 18-month EMBA program is split into six 10-week academic quarters, with approximately 10 credit hours per quarter.

Each quarter incorporates core courses focused on fundamental business concepts. Most quarters also include electives, which let students take deep dives into the topics that interest them most.

The curriculum also extends beyond the classroom into real-world integrative classes. You’ll travel to San Diego for a team-building sailing experience, head abroad for a global experience and develop a hands-on solution in a social impact project.

Throughout their program, students receive executive and career coaching to support their professional growth.

An optimal schedule for work-life balance

With start dates every March and September, the Executive MBA is available to you when you’re ready.

As an EMBA student, you’ll come to campus one full day each week, on alternating Fridays and Saturdays: Friday this week, Saturday the next.

Students tell us that the pacing is just right, and that the consistent once-a-week schedule helps them balance academics with work and personal commitments. Have a conflict on occasion? We understand. Classes are recorded for review.

Classes kick off with a one-day orientation, which marks the start of your life as a Daniels EMBA student. You’ll be provided an 18-month class calendar in advance to plan for business travel or personal time off.
