The Executive MBA program’s curriculum is specifically designed to mimic the patterns of business. This unique format offers the following:
- Thematic approach: Each semester has an overarching theme related to creating and sustaining value in an organization. Professors incorporate the theme into coursework and encourage students to examine its application in today’s dynamic business environment. The themes that are covered in the Executive MBA program are: the value-creation process, the determinants of value, the value chain and integration, implementation and leadership.
- Interdisciplinary coursework: The traditional MBA curriculum is divided into one- or two-day modules in order to systematically weave disciplines together. This approach allows professors to highlight the connections between finance, marketing, accounting, strategy, supply chain, communications and other business disciplines.
- Personal leadership development: The Executive MBA program encourages students to expand their leadership capacity through analyzing their own leadership style, Students also delve into timely leadership topics such as ethical decision-making, thinking like a leader, influencing others and leading or participating in teams.
- Student engagement: Our professors continually engage students in dialogue and challenge them to bring their own experiences to the table in a meaningful way. Students are encouraged to identify the relationship between current areas of study and situations in their own organizations. This type of engagement makes the program content more relevant and provides immediate benefit to both the student and the organization. These dynamic discussions and interactions in the classroom help students learn innovative approaches to opportunities and problems from classmates and faculty.
