An Experienced Peer Group
The EMBA class consists of experienced professionals. The broad, collective experience
of the student body creates a challenging and stimulating learning environment. Students
learn as much from their peers as the instructors.
The program is completed in 20 months with 30 hours of coursework. Classes meet on
Saturdays, usually two times a month. The course schedule is preplanned for the entire program and the weekend schedule minimizes work week
interruptions. Students can implement things they are learning immediately.
International experience Each Executive MBA class gets a chance to experience first hand the business practices
of another culture. The students travel as a class to a different country to gain
perspective on how business processes are influenced by the prevailing economic, cultural
and regulatory environments. This week-long experience is offered exclusively to the
students in the Executive MBA program and is included in the EMBA tuition. Learn more about the EMBA International Experience.

Collaborative learning environment Students enter the program as a group (cohort) and proceed through the preplanned
curriculum sequence together. Student work experience is extremely important to the
learning environment. Students are placed in a small group for program support and
some classroom group work. The EMBA cohort also offers tremendous networking opportunities.
