The Executive MBA program is organized to allow working managers the opportunity to continue their professional commitments while simultaneously participating fully in a lockstep MBA program that is 11 months in length. The program is designed to be delivered in a hybrid format with online courses and five on-site classes on Saturdays, either on-campus or in New York City.

Students will be trained in five main themes to help garner the skills needed to excel in their career: leadership, analytics, resource management, innovation and investments, and strategy. At the end of each learning module, students will apply their knowledge of each theme through one-day, in-person residencies. These consist of consulting projects on campus, in conjunction with the Center for Entrepreneurship, and executive directed discussions on current global business topics in New York City.

The program begins with an on-campus two-day initial residency and culminates with an international experience through the one-week Global Practicum.
