EMBA: an alternate path to management education

What is an EMBA?

Executive MBA (EMBA) is a postgraduate curriculum that covers the basic components of management – finance, operations, marketing, strategy, human resources, etc. In addition, the EMBA offers courses focused on current theories and issues faced by senior managers. Many programs also include leadership and interpersonal skills development opportunities.

The program is designed for completion within 1-2 years through a combination of bi-monthly 2-3 day weekend sessions, ongoing Internet-based learning, a few weeks (usually in summer) of study on-campus, and sometimes a field-study or industry tour outside the country.

Currently, there are more than 200 EMBA programs worldwide offered by accredited universities. The EMBA should not be confused with an “eMBA,” which is primarily a distance-learning program usually offered by non-accredited institutions.
