EMBA timetable

Accelerated Timetable

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. 

Administrative support

Administrative details are left to us, so that the student can focus on learning. Students do not have to register for classes, buy books, obtain parking passes, etc. Tuition for the EMBA is all-inclusive. The fee covers registration, textbooks, class materials, continental breakfast, lunch on class days, the week-long international trip, evening and class social events and other amenities.

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.
