Executive MBA Academics

Explore the rigorous, interdisciplinary coursework designed to strengthen your leadership skills and enhance your career.


The Executive MBA is designed to allow working professionals to earn an advanced business degree without interrupting their careers. The program begins in August and spans 20 months. Classes are held on Fridays and Saturdays of alternating weeks in addition to two international and two domestic week-long residencies, which immerse students in real-world business projects. In the first year, EMBA students master the fundamentals of business. The second year is tailored, with students completing three advanced business courses focused on relationships between geopolitics and business, as well as seven electives.


EMBA classes are led by experienced faculty who offer practical and applicable knowledge and who are equally committed to our students as mentors beyond the classroom. This group of noted experts and educators understand the nuances of international business and deliver rich, practical insights to our Executive MBA students.
