Executive MBA Admission Requirements

Candidates for the Executive MBA program are individuals who are self-motivated and have the temperament to handle the demands of work, school and home, and the willingness to make a 20-month commitment.

When considering admission, the ability to complete the entire program is an important requirement. Because the EMBA curriculum is customized for completion in 20 months, no credit for courses can be transferred in or out of the program.
