Designed to develop the complete executive, our program offers an exciting, innovative and unique educational and professional experience.
Program structure The EMBA class schedule is designed to enable candidates to earn their degree while continuing to work full-time. Classes are held one day per week, on alternate Fridays and Saturdays, thereby minimizing time spent away from the workplace and away from home. This enables students to be introduced to an idea or practice in class on a Friday or Saturday, begin applying it on Monday and then share their experience with their classmates a few short days later.
The four-term program is completed over a 20-month period (owing to breaks between semesters, actual classroom time occurs in only 15 of those months). Our seven-day international study trip takes place in May, at the end of the second term.
Our students undertake their EMBA studies as part of a cohort – a group which progresses through the program together. The resulting team dynamic not only helps students develop their interpersonal skills and group decision-making abilities, but also creates a network of international, high-achieving professionals that extends far beyond graduation.
Class days begin with breakfast in the EMBA dining room at 7:15 a.m. Classes start at 8 a.m. and end at 5:30 p.m.
Meals and refreshments are provided – Menus are monitored by PERFORM Centre dieticians to ensure the availability of healthy offerings.
World-class faculty Our faculty members are hand-picked based on their in-depth subject knowledge, proven teaching and facilitation skills and hands-on familiarity with the “real life” business world. They are able to draw on both their strong academic backgrounds and their extensive business experience to give our students the well-rounded understanding of business that will be required of tomorrow’s executives.
A minimum of 5 years of full-time work experience or more is required. Supervisory responsibilities are preferred; A bachelor/baccalaureate degree or equivalent qualifications (a small number of applicants may be accepted without an undergraduate degree, provided they meet other requirements); A satisfactory result on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). However, this requirement may be waived for candidates with strong academic credentials.
