The NJIT EMBA is designed to prepare a new generation of technology savvy business leaders and entrepreneurs with the skills to succeed in an increasingly complex and competitive business environment. The curriculum prepares students to think strategically about business and technology.
The cost of the EMBA is comparable to that of many "traditional" MBA programs.
Our View of Executive Education
Our philosophy of management education is based on relevance, practicality, and innovation. The EMBA is designed to meet these objectives while also meeting the needs of people working in challenging and demanding careers.
An Innovative Curriculum: Directed Study, Blended Learning, and Saturday Classes
From the day we launched the EMBA, we learned that one of the most important take-aways for students is knowledge that translates directly into the workplace. We are building on past successes with directed study which refers to projects that link course concepts to work-related issues and problems that students face every day. These projects are guided by the instructor who serves as a mentor and advisor.
We have also learned that there is a considerable difference between course contact hours and quality contact hours. The most common EMBA schedule consists of full-day classes (every other Friday and Saturday). Our extensive experience employing learning technologies led us to blended learning as a better model which combines a mixture of face-to-face classes, online interaction, and directed study.
