Executive Master in Business Administration

The Executive Master in Business Administration (EMBA) is a part-time graduate degree program that allows middle- to senior-level executives to balance career commitments alongside higher education goals.

EMBA rebuilds the student’s knowledge of general management concepts, connecting these ideas to discussions of real-life business cases, and relating them to the student’s own professional experiences.

Like the MBA, the executive program takes students through a rigorous curriculum of management fundamentals and strategy. With EMBA candidates having diverse professional and technical backgrounds, and given that each class has an average of 10 – 12 years’ work experience, each course is designed to take advantage of the group’s collective expertise.

Program coursework spans 20 months, followed by a three-month independent study period where students work on their capstone project.
