Business Administration–Online Executive MBA

Program overview

The online executive MBA is a challenging and demanding program designed to accelerate the careers of mature, high-performance professionals with significant business experience, unlike traditional MBA programs which are geared primarily toward a less experienced audience. The online program, delivered via distance learning, covers the same rigorous curriculum as the on campus EMBA.

The program is ideal for creative, innovative individuals who have gained experience in the workforce. Participants have established careers and are looking for proven and effective methods and strategies to propel them further up the career ladder. Students master executive skills such as strategic and cross–functional thinking and leadership. They learn from knowledgeable and professional instructors and from the successful, motivated, diverse peer group enrolled in the program.

The program encourages students to think outside the box and places a strong emphasis on group networking. Students leave the program with a solid network of influential peers.


This is a 17-month program with all courses completed online. Students can begin the program in the fall or spring semester. The following course sequence is based on a student who begins their studies in the fall semester.
