The EMBA is an integrated program designed to provide synergy across content, delivery, experiential and cognitive learning, and real- world job application. Its content is developed around six modules:
In addition, many core topics run through the entire program and do not always take place within the confines of one university trimester. For example, topics such as ethics are continuous; others are pulsed or covered in segments during the 23-month program. Students enroll each trimester in 9 credits of courses that meet on weekends (Friday afternoon and evening and Saturday morning and afternoon) about six times per trimester at two- to- three-week intervals. Students are enrolled continuously until the program is completed. On occasion, the classes are longer. The program includes a two-day effective executive workshop, a two-day ethics session, a two-day business simulation, and a session in Washington D.C. The strategic management project is a means of applying the concepts and learning gained in each course to the real-world learning opportunities of each student's job and future promotions.
To offer an efficient and compelling learning experience, several integrating approaches are utilized to create a robust learning opportunity surpassing traditional approaches to Executive MBA education.
