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 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 a 17 month period.
