What is an Executive MBA (EMBA)?
The Executive MBA (EMBA) is a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree program. If you are an executive professional, or a rising leader with strong managerial experience, the EMBA program is designed for you. Our rigorous and comprehensive five-semester program starts annually in August and features alternating Saturday classes. Your learning will focus on advancing the skills and knowledge you need to solve the evolving challenges in today’s fast-paced economy.
The UTSA EMBA program is taught as a cohort, meaning you start and finish the program with the same participant group.
Do I Qualify for the EMBA?
You do not need a c-suite title to participate in the EMBA program. Our successful applicants demonstrate a strong work ethic, have eight or more years of professional experience and have demonstrated increasing responsibility in their roles. If you are an aspiring professional looking to become an inspiring leader, or a current leader looking to build your business knowledge, the EMBA program may be a great fit for you.
What Does the Program Cost?
An EMBA program is an important investment for you and your future. The program cost is $65,000 for Texas residents and $79,500 for non-residents. As you may fund the program through a combination of sources including personal funds and corporate reimbursements, we encourage you to learn more about available financing options. Federal student loans are available, and the program also qualifies for the Post 9/11 GI Bill and the Hazlewood Exemption.
Please note: Due to the format of our program, we are unable to accommodate transfer students, and you must be prepared to start in August.
The EMBA program ranked No. 13 out of 69 programs in CEO Magazine’s 2023 Global Executive MBA Rankings.
Our EMBA program is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), which places our college in the top 5% of business schools worldwide.
