A format that fits your life.

The online, 12-course curriculum is offered as a two-year cohort program beginning each year in the Fall. This allows students in each cohort to begin the program at the same point, move through the curriculum together, and build supportive working relationships in a stimulating online environment. Courses in the EMBA program are sequenced to assure continuity in learning.

EMBA students are required to complete their degrees in two years. Each year is divided into three semesters, each containing two courses: Fall, Spring, Summer. All coursework is completed online and each class runs for 12 weeks. For each class, students will have at least one proctored exam which will be taken through an online test proctoring service.

You can connect with a program ambassador to learn more about the experience from a recent EMBA graduate.
