Executive MBA 20-Month Program


The 20-month Executive MBA program is designed for professionals with at least five years of work/managerial experience who studied an undergraduate major outside of finance and accounting. For students who have already satisfied these prerequisites, Saint Joseph’s offers the only One-Year EMBA in Philadelphia. 

The 20-Month EMBA cohort begins in September every year. Classes typically meet one full day per week, alternating between Fridays and Saturdays. Over five semesters, our students first develop their core business acumen, and then expand into strategic management and leadership skills within a global business perspective -- including multiple opportunities to interact with active CEOs and C-Level executives on real business cases. The program's International Residency expands this perspective and gives students a deeper understanding of the managerial, political and cultural concepts that influence and drive international business.

Surrounded by accomplished students and peers, the executive classroom format is energetic, collaborative and designed to stimulate critical thinking and engage dynamic discussion. Our purpose is to develop the next generation of senior business professionals through a rigorous education grounded in ethics, teamwork and leadership. Our students gain both the skills they need to attain their personal goals and the executive presence to advance the greater good of men and women around the world.
