Who Should Apply

The EMBA program focuses on the needs of managers and professionals who want to earn an Executive MBA but cannot attend regularly scheduled classes. Many of these potential students may have demanding travel or work schedules. Others may live and work beyond commuting distance of a university.

Students entering this program are experienced business people bringing their own unique perspectives and insights to the program. Most come to the program with recommendations and support from their employers and are determined to play an active role in answering "what's next?" for business in the new century.

Alumni and current students come from a wide range of industries and disciplines including banking and finance, insurance, health care, telecom, construction, power generation, law, real estate, software technology, pharmaceuticals, consulting, media and advertising, and publishing.

The program seeks applicants who:
  • Have several years of business experience and responsibility;
  • Are frequent PC users familiar with the Internet;
  • Have an independent learning style;
  • Are self-motivated and self-disciplined.
Each module requires regular and frequent contributions, and the two year completion time requires significant work each week. Though employer sponsorships are advantageous to EMBA students, all qualified applicants are invited to seek admission.
