The Global Executive MBA program is aimed at senior executives who want to further their business acumen and enhance their understanding of conducting business globally. The format flexibility and length of the program will permit students to earn their MBA. The 17-month program blends face-to-face on-campus modules, which include executive presentations, case studies and group projects, with distance learning. It covers four focus areas (Global Strategy and Execution; Managing Global Operations and Decision Making; Global Multi-Cultural Leadership; and Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology) through eleven courses or modules, as well as an Integrated Project carried out in nine on-campus residencies and eight Inter-Residencies (distance-learning). The Global EMBA is lock-step in nature. Students will progress together through a sequential pattern of courses. The students will obtain their MBA after the successful completion of 45 credit hours over an 17 month period.
