EMBA Curriculum

Global Capstone

Executive MBA students write their own ticket abroad. Literally.

Each 22-month Executive MBA experience concludes with an international capstone trip, the culmination of an in-depth, consulting-style business project. The students in the Executive MBA cohort collaborate to choose the country they'll focus on, and the business problem their consulting work will solve.

Then, once their consulting work is done, they get on a plane. In addition to presenting their project on-site, they benefit from cultural events and lectures on how to do business within their country of choice.

EMBA Career Development

Our Executive MBA offers an exciting new career development program designed for students looking to "transition up" within their own organizations, function, and industry, or "transition out" and into a new career.

The career development program offers workshops, tactical tools, professional development, and coaching that enables Executive MBA students the opportunity to develop a "Transition Toolkit and Roadmap" that provides a pathway for taking on increased responsibilities in their current sector or to pivot into a new career path. 

Additionally, our Executive MBA students also have access to more than a dozen job search tools, workshops, and resources available through our Career Development Center.
