Course Overview

Executive MBA degree programme are designed to deliver a broad understanding of general management and administration, just as traditional MBA programme do. However, traditional MBA curricula are designed for early-career professionals, while Executive MBA programme target mid and later-career professionals with significant professional experience at the managerial level and above. Accordingly, EMBA curricula bypass content that a seasoned professional should already know. EMBA coursework tends to be more concentrated and more advanced than traditional MBA content. Instructors expect EMBA students to contribute substantially to course discussions, drawing upon the knowledge and skills they’ve acquired in business to guide and drive instruction.

The objective of our EMBA Programme is to develop mid-career professionals and emerging managers into complete executives capable of applying advanced leadership practice in the global marketplace. We don’t stop at management skills and insights, however. In keeping with our core values of excellence, leadership, truth, and service, the EMBA aims to cultivate business leaders who can develop financially healthy growth companies while acting with the highest level of character, integrity, and purpose and promoting socially responsible business practices.

Programme content is designed to transform business professionals into C-Suite executives, competent leaders, and an asset to any company for which they work.
