Program Structure

Residencies

The in-person aspect of the MEMBA format spans five class terms and features ten weeklong sessions, called residencies. During residencies, you will be immersed in our lockstep, general management curriculum through a strategic pairing of classes designed to build on one another, maximizing your learning through their inter-connectivity. Augmenting these classes is an array of complimentary experiences - from dynamic, global speakers to interactive learning opportunities like our innovative Management Practice course. These activities help you translate your learning into action steps, making the knowledge you gain even more valuable. Include robust peer-to-peer conversations, dynamic group meetings with classmates and invaluable career coaching and it's clear our MEMBA format is designed for maximum impact.

Distance Learning

Every executive in our program already manages the tough task of work/life balance. When looking for a top-tier program to fit within the confines of their daily responsibilities, our unique MEMBA format stands tall above the rest. Using a mix of distance learning tools and flexible study scheduling so you can tailor to your individual needs, our approach is one of the most innovative of its kind. It is also one of the longest-standing hybrid models, created more than a decade ago to address the growing need for unique learning methods that maximize technology without sacrificing valuable in-person interactions. During your time away from campus, you will stay plugged in through a series of classes, group sessions and digital modules all capable of taking place wherever you need to be. The utilization of conference tools and virtual courses lets you manage the average 15-20 hours of study and weekly deliverables needed to succeed while still allowing you to manage a full life at work and home.
