Emory's Executive MBA curriculum is designed to develop strategic thinking skills and expand the business acumen of business leaders. Our program offers a strong general management lockstep curriculum designed to build on the solid experiences our students bring into the program. A select number of electives – particularly well suited for seasoned executives – further enables students to acquire the breadth of skills and understanding expected of an MBA. Our integrated curriculum teaches students how to navigate complex and often ambiguous situations across all areas of business. Executives gain the broad knowledge base necessary to successfully lead their organizations.
Both our Weekend Executive MBA program structure and Modular Executive MBA program structure maximize the value of time spent in the classroom. Students benefit from faculty thought-leaders incorporating proven academic theory and relevant marketplace experience. Activities including workshops, speakers and events – designed specifically for executives – complement the classroom experience. Also, in addition to world-class academics, Executive MBA students engage in Management Practice and Leadership Practice.
- Management Practice—Learning how leaders define, structure and solve the complicated business problems that determine the success of companies and careers. Management Practice draws from global strategy consultancies and highly successful executives and will help develop the process skills necessary to capitalize on the academic experience.
- Leadership Practice—Learning how leaders inside and outside of business manage themselves, their teams and organizations to affect positive change. Leadership Practice helps develop the communication and influencing skills needed to succeed in leadership, throughout your career.
These core elements – world-class academics, management practice and leadership practice – provide students with a curriculum that builds upon their career experience and strengthens their positions as key business leaders.
