EMBA Curriculum

The Executive MBA is a 16-month accelerated program offering fully online Saturday classes.  Recognizing  the imperative to expand our understanding of the world- and its challenges and growing complexities- appropriately, the program begins with a full day at the United Nations, focusing on Perspectives on Globalization; STEM and the Economy; and Opportunities and Challenges of Developing Economies.  

While the program is fully online, during your 16-month experience, we will host five (2-day/Friday and Saturday) immersion/integration “boot camps” focused around the programs four critical themes:  transformation of organizations; analytics and the digital economy; STEM, innovation, and business; and strategic management.  During these sessions, students will participate in business roundtables, and network with business professionals, including EMBA alumni.

The EMBA curriculum combines business know-how with the vital skills to meet the challenges of technology driven change to prepare a new generation of business leaders.

The EMBA Experience: Immersion, Application, Integration

The lock step, accelerated delivery of the EMBA curriculum provides a unique, value-added experience geared to the needs of high potential managers and professionals.

Immersion:  Working with a cohort of students that offers a breadth and depth of business experience in an accelerated mode of delivery facilitates engagement in courses. As the program unfolds, students become increasingly skilled at rapidly grasping and applying key management concepts.

Application: Directed study and work-related projects ensure that course knowledge translates directly to the workplace while the course is in session. Students receive feedback from each other and from their instructors about how business concepts can be applied to their work setting and their career trajectories. 

Integration: The EMBA provides several capstone experiences where themes from related courses are synthesized and integrated. For example, the international study tour in the International Business course contrasts American management strategies and practices with those in different parts of the world. This invaluable experience is "globalization" first hand - an encounter that brings students in contact with leaders in the areas of business-government relations. Similarly, marketing, finance, design and development of high tech products, and managing supply and value chains are linked in our STEM and business course as students work to understand how technology creates value with new products and services.

The EMBA Curriculum encompasses four thematic areas:

Transformation of Organizations
Analytics and the Digital Economy
STEM, Innovation, and Business
Strategic Management
