Leadership Executive MBA

  • Lead to a stronger bottom line—and a better world.

    Ready for a transformational leadership role in your career and the world? Our Leadership Executive MBA is uniquely designed to make it happen.

    Our 20-month program for mid- to senior-level professionals focuses on executive leadership, core business expertise and social responsibility.

    Together with a cohort of talented, accomplished professionals you'll broaden your leadership perspective through coursework, rigorous application, reflection and dedicated one-to-one executive coaching. You'll tap the expertise of world-class faculty and learn alongside talented, accomplished classmates from diverse industries and disciplines. The impact? Immediate, profound, and life changing.

    The compressed schedule allows participants to graduate in six academic quarters, with classes that meet once a month in two- to three-day modules. Meeting days are typically Thursday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

    What make us different

    The depth of focus on leadership sets this program apart from other Executive MBAs. Founded on the principles of the Executive Leadership Program (ELP), your first two quarters are devoted to finding your vision and voice as a leader and developing the insights and skills that will serve you as a leader in business and in the larger society.

    What you'll gain

    • A deeper understanding of what it means to be a leader. All participants spend the first two quarters immersed in the Executive Leadership Program. Learn more.
    • Advanced, in-depth business skills and best practices. During the course of the next three quarters, you'll acquire the principles, tools and practices of an effective leader and begin putting them into practice.
    • How to apply your new business skills through the lens of leadership. In the final quarter of the program, you'll synthesize all you've learned in a capstone project of importance to you.

  • The EMBA program will change your life. I use what I learned every day. Before the EMBA, I was much more a manager than a leader. After the EMBA, I definitely evolved into a leader. My description of a manager is someone who makes sure people do stuff. My description of a leader is someone who gets people to want to do great stuff.
