Executive MBA students bring unique executive experiences to the classroom, which enhances the learning environment for all (learn about the make-up of current cohorts).  Several classes are blended with our traditional MBAs.  Mixing these two populations brings new perspectives to the classroom discussion, allowing for richer and more diverse classroom experiences. 

Our program caters to the part-time student, full-time employee who desires to continue working while pursuing graduate education within a cohort process. As a cohort, students will take two classes each semester for six consecutive semesters (two years).  Each class is taught once each week, Monday through Thursday, at 7:10-9:55pm. In addition, a Saturday morning workshop is offered once a semester.   Please see the FAQ page or Curriculum page for more detailed information..
