Executive MBA 20-Month Program
The 20-month executive MBA (EMBA) program is designed for professionals with at least five years of experience who need MBA credentials to advance their career, but did not study business or finance as an undergraduate. A previous degree program and work experience helps to support admissions criteria for this program and the GMAT is not required.
Surrounded by accomplished students and peers, the EMBA classroom atmosphere is energetic, collaborative and designed to stimulate critical thinking and engage dynamic discussion. Executive lectures, a CEO Intervention program, and an international study tour enhance the rigorous curriculum. Students also benefit from one-on-one executive coaching, team coaching and leadership development.
Saint Joseph's EMBA students are a diverse community, which enriches the student experience and offers a global perspective. The program's International Residency to emerging business centers such as Dublin, Copenhagen, Paris, Athens, Beijing, Shanghai, Suzhou, Hong Kong and Tokyo, expands this perspective and gives students a deeper understanding of the managerial, political and cultural concepts that influence and drive international business.
The EMBA program is carefully structured to minimize disruption to students' careers and personal lives, while delivering an AACSB-accredited business education in an accelerated format. Classes typically meet one full day a week, on alternating Fridays and Saturdays, and don’t require overnight weekend residencies. Students have the option of pursuing the degree in either a one-year or a 20-month program format.
Upon graduation, students gain access to Saint Joseph's alumni network of successful professionals, a powerful resource of more than 36,000 graduates. Furthermore, graduates leave Hawk Hill with the skills to create and seize opportunities in a constantly changing global market, now, and at every stage of their careers.
