Course Sequence & class schedule designed for optimum balance

The program is 18-months with 10-week quarters, five-week classes and a fully integrated curriculum which is time-tested, fast-paced and relevant.

As an EMBA student, you commit to coming 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 the once-a-week schedule provides optimum balance between work and personal commitments. Have a conflict on occasion? We understand. Classes are recorded for review.

The following course types comprise the EMBA curriculum:

  • Leadership—Develop the leadership and managerial skills demanded by today’s business environment, including a focus on self-leadership, emotional intelligence, team collaboration, ethics and corporate social responsibility.
  • Quantitative—These courses span a comprehensive review of corporate finance to strategic cost management to using financial data to make strategic and sound business decisions.
  • Strategy—Develop your ability to think strategically about all aspects of an organization from human capital management to marketing to identifying and implementing innovations.
  • Business Context/Conclusion—The EMBA begins with a specialized Business Context and Economics class to provide a strong foundation for your following coursework in accounting and finance. At the conclusion of the EMBA, you will deliver and evaluate your New Venture/Business Plan and Social Impact projects.
