Our Executive MBA (EMBA) program curriculum, in both the general management and healthcare professionals track, consists of three learning threads:

  1. Quantitative Learning Thread: Featuring financial accounting, managerial accounting, finance and corporate restructuring
  2. Analytical Learning Thread: Focused on business analytics, big data and cyber security, marketing and economics
  3. Managerial Learning Thread: Including organizational behavior, negotiations, ethics, innovation and entrepreneurship, and leadership

Integrative Projects

As part of your program curriculum, you will engage in integrative learning projects as part of Strategic Analysis, Strategic Planning and Strategy Implementation. The projects are designed to combine knowledge across learning threads. The final strategic management project will combine learning across the entire EMBA program.

Professional Development

In addition to the learning tracks and integrative projects above, we incorporate professional development and executive coaching into your EMBA experience. You will have professional development courses in your first, third and fifth semester, and access to one-on-one sessions with an executive coach. During these sessions you will define your career vision, develop specific goals that align with your professional trajectory, and enhance the skills you need to make your vision a reality.

  • The UTSA EMBA is a phenomenal experience that is taught by a world-class faculty. It is full of critical information for anyone in a position of leadership.
