Further, the students represent diverse industries and job functions, providing an enriching experience and balanced perspective. The curriculum consists of 4 Thematic Areas: Leadership, Globalization, Creativity and Innovation, and Business and Government Relations.
EMBA candidates have the opportunity to participate in a 7-10 day international study tour. Meeting with business leaders in their work environments, students learn first-hand the opportunities and issues posed by today’s volatile-yet-exciting international business climate. Recent tours have included Brazil, France, The Czech Republic, Russia, Estonia, Chile, Argentina, and China. Students have called the trips “invaluable.” [I gained] “critical insight….we would never have learned in any classroom or textbook.”
The program offers the additional benefit of PMP or Risk Management certification training. This new program feature represents an integration of the EMBA with industry recognized professional qualifications.
These criteria are standard admission guidelines; however, each candidate is evaluated based upon his/her individual profile.
Candidates must have an earned bachelor’s degree (4 year US equivalent) and must take the GMAT (minimum score of 500); the GRE (with a comparable score) is also acceptable.
- Candidates with an earned Master’s or PhD from a US or Canada based “accredited" program
- Candidates with a minimum GPA of 2.8 from a US based research intensive University
- Candidates [without masters degrees], who have “significant” management experience, may appeal to the EMBA admission committee for a GMAT waiver; there is no waiver guarantee.
