Executive MBA (EMBA) Curriculum

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.

Personalized Career Insight

Personalized career insight is an integral part of your EMBA experience. Students will have the opportunity to engage in their own career growth in both cohort (Professional Development) and one-on-one (Executive Coaching) settings.

Professional Development: A Cohort Experience

You will engage in professional development-focused sessions during your first, third and fifth semester. These class sessions will help you 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, while learning and engaging with your cohort members as part of this process.

Executive Coaching: One-on-One Sessions

In addition to the Professional Development sessions, Executive Coaching is also available. You will have the option to schedule one-on-one sessions with a trained coaching professional, to help you further develop clearly defined goals, work through conflict issues that may arise at work, take actionable steps towards a promotion or job change you might be seeking, or any other range of work issues that you would like to work through. Much like the coach of a sports team, an executive coach will support and challenge you, as you pursue your full professional potential.

  • The program’s focus on leadership, globalization, negotiation and core business fundamentals has allowed me to navigate the most complex assignments and succeed under continuously evolving business requirements, global politics and market conditions.
