Inspired Curriculum By Design

Thoughtfully designed with courses grouped into five broad themes, our EMBA curriculum will expand your perspective through multidisciplinary and multi-industry exposure, as well as through coursework, reflection, rigorous application, and--unique among Executive MBA programs and top business schools--ongoing, dedicated one-on-one executive coaching. Detailed course descriptions can be found in our Graduate Catalog

Curriculum Overview

The first two quarters focus exclusively on personal leadership and the remaining four quarters are jam-packed with everything you need to be a well-rounded business person. It was completely integrated with our work as professionals; we were tasked with applying the concepts we were learning--both leadership and business--to our own environments, not a fictitious company or situation from a textbook.
