EMBA (Executive MBA) in Global Leadership
Upcoming Start Dates October 28, January 6
Why This Program Is Needed
It is imperative that the leadership teams of virtually every company must collectively recognize that they are managing their organization in a complex global network of suppliers, competitors, partners and customers - with all of the risks and opportunities entailed. In our view, this global context is not to be feared. Rather, it must be embraced, and our leadership and management teams must be educated and prepared accordingly.
For Whom This Program Is Designed
Our online Executive MBA with a focus on Global Leadership is designed for advanced-career professionals who aspire to lead their companies towards much higher performance in their global networks. It begins with coverage of fundamental management essentials such as financial, analytical and decision-making skills, and knowledge of an organization's core functions and interactions. But the program goes much further than that. Its core focus is on leadership techniques, especially collaborative leadership in the complex cross-boundary global context, both within the company and between companies.
Our goal is to prepare advanced-career professionals and managers for senior managerial positions, and to prepare them for success in those positions, all without interrupting their career momentum. To accomplish our educational goal we employ a variety of educational tools and techniques, including some of the most advanced online teaching and learning applications available, and a carefully designed suite of courses delivered in a focused andflexible schedule.
There are fourteen courses: ten foundation courses, three specialization courses including one elective, and one capstone integration project. Courses are completed in a seven-week fixed-agenda format. If courses are taken in a typical seven-week fixed-agenda format, the duration of the EMBA program is two years, five months.
The Online Experience
To maximize the global learning experience throughout the program our students will participate in "live" seminars and/or conferences with experienced leaders from global organizations. Our students and faculty are not limited by geographical boundaries, providing a new educational experience that allows learners to think with a global perspective while working on case studies and projects with other colleagues from around the world.
The program is also designed to integrate knowledge across subject areas. Students keep a journal/portfolio throughout their program, accumulating projects and assignments as they progress through the program and using this prior work as resource material for their final project. There are also specific portfolio activities and assignments throughout the program where students are asked to combine or compare knowledge across courses.
Individuals who wish to apply to the Executive MBA in Global Leadership will have an undergraduate degree and five years of work experience, including two years in management.
