Online Executive MBA program begins this fall

Stanley Widrick

Business professionals who wish to increase their competitive edge and earn a graduate business degree through online education can now log in to RIT’s newest virtual classroom opportunity.

RIT’s E. Philip Saunders College of Business has announced a partnership with Toronto-based online service provider Embanet to launch an e-learning Executive MBA program in September.

The 72-week program is identical to the curriculum taught on campus and includes an international trip for students to explore the global influence of business.

Stanley Widrick, director of RIT’s new online EMBA program and professor of marketing and international business in the Saunders College, says the AACSB-accredited Executive MBA will give working executives the flexibility they need to access course content, post discussions and brainstorm with peers at their convenience.

“Our EMBA is designed specifically for busy professionals whose time is valuable,” Widrick says. “It can be accessed at any time of the day or night from anywhere with an Internet connection.”

A leading full-service provider of online learning technology for more than a decade, Embanet offers support for students, faculty and administrators through a dedicated toll-free number, live online chat, e-mail and a self-help “frequently asked questions” portal.
