EMBA Executive Management
The College of Business and Innovation offers an innovative Executive M.B.A. (E.M.B.A.) program for executives of mid-sized and growing firms. The program curriculum is designed to enhance the ability of managers to manage the change and growth common in today’s competitive environment. To accomplish this, participants in the program take courses built around three major integrative themes – entrepreneurship, e-business, and competition in a global marketplace.
The E.M.B.A. program is designed with experienced managers in mind and is tailored to fit their schedules. Through the use of a structured approach, executives are able to pursue an M.B.A. with their peers at a level and pace appropriate to their business experience.
Admission to Executive Master of Business Administration (E.M.B.A.) Program
The E.M.B.A. program is designed for executives and professionals with a minimum of three to five years of management or professional experience. The E.M.B.A. Admissions Committee seeks candidates with proven leadership potential. The following documents are required for admission to the program:
- Official transcripts from each post-secondary institution attended.
- Official GMAT* scores sent directly from the Graduate Management Admissions Council (GMAC) to the College of Graduate Studies. GMAT scores must be no more than five years old.
- A current resume to allow the Admissions Committee the opportunity to assess the individual’s work experience.
- Employer nomination form and two letters of recommendation from individuals who know the applicant in a professional capacity, one of which must be from the applicant’s employer. The employer nomination form must be completed by someone other than those completing the letters of recommendation. Self-employed applicants may substitute the employer nomination with a third professional reference.
- In the case of students whose native language is not English, a score of at least 550 (paper based), 213 (computer based), or 80 (internet based) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is mandatory. **
* The GMAT can be waived for applicants with sufficient supervisory experience and competitive GPA.
** The TOEFL can be waived for applicants who are permanent residents and have worked in the US for more than one year provided the E.M.B.A. Admissions Committee determines the applicants’ language proficiency. If an applicant to the E.M.B.A. program is on an F1 or J1 visa, they must provide passing TOEFL or IELTS scores unless there is evidence of an earned US degree.
All applicants to the E.M.B.A. program are also required to interview with the Admissions Committee. The interview will take place once the application for admission has been completed. Applications for admission are considered on a rolling basis for fall entry only. Final admissions decisions will be withheld until the application for admission is complete. No materials submitted to the University will be returned to the applicant.
