International Capstone

Each 22-month Executive MBA experience concludes with an international capstone trip, the culmination of an in-depth, consulting-style business project. The students in the Executive MBA cohort collaborate to choose the country they'll focus on, and the business problem their consulting work will solve. Then, once their consulting work is done, they get on a plane. In addition to presenting their project on site, they benefit from cultural events and lectures on how to do business within their country of choice.

Focus on Management and Strategy

  • EMBAs complete a full concentration in management systems
  • Additional courses in finance and business communication
  • Discussion of current ethical issues in business
