Executive MBA Program Curriculum Overview

You begin your MBA study by building a solid foundation of broad management skills through the core curriculum in your first year. You then develop one or more areas of expertise through electives in your second year of the program. Majors are not required in the executive MBA program; however, some of the more general majors, such as entrepreneurship, finance, management, marketing, and strategic management, can be earned by executive students as a result of pursuing their area of interest.

The learning experience is enhanced by the real-time knowledge that students share in the classroom. There is usually someone, across the many industries and roles represented in the class, who can share insight into the issues being discussed.
