The E.M.B.A. Makeover: Transform Yourself into Senior Management
The Executive M.B.A. program at Hofstra University’s Frank G. Zarb School of Business is designed for managers with at least seven years of managerial experience who want to accelerate their careers while continuing to work full time. The Zarb E.M.B.A. teaches strategic thinking and advanced management with a global perspective in a 20 month period
The Zarb School is among just 10 percent of graduate business schools nationwide to have AACSB International Accreditation for both its M.B.A. and accounting programs. It is the only graduate business school in Nassau or Suffolk with both accreditations which makes the Zarb E.M.B.A. an esteemed program.
The 20 month schedule of the Executive M.B.A. program consists of seven consecutive semesters. The first 12 months of the programs (four semesters) combine an overview of the various business functions in the context of decision making and management. The final eight months of the program (three semesters) adopt a more interdisciplinary methodology and intense international business study. The International Management Practicum is conducted at the beginning of this eight month time frame.
Each cohort will initially meeting in September of each year. Classes convene at 8 a.m. and conclude around 6 p.m. in the first year of the program. In the second year of the program classes conclude around 4 p.m. Sessions are conducted on an all day Saturday schedule. During a typical day, time is allotted for short breaks and a lunch period. Through this structure, instructors are able to assist students in optimizing the time allotted to build on the skills they are in the process of developing and complementing the skills they have already mastered.
