MBA Executive - Curriculum


Learn to make more strategic decisions and lead your organization with impact. The comprehensive Executive MBA curriculum delivers insights across the spectrum of business and management foundations.


Our entrepreneurial approach to learning at the W. P. Carey School of Business utilizes a variety of teaching methods, including case studies, role plays, and simulations, to ensure you develop high-level skills and confidence across the major business disciplines. The Executive MBA curriculum also emphasizes ethical, high-impact leadership, developing and sustaining a competitive advantage, how to interpret and use data for decision-making and the requisite soft skills needed for senior leaders.

Intellectual rigor, exposure to diverse industries, practices and ideas, and interaction with world-renowned faculty and exceptional students make the W. P. Carey EMBA a transformational experience that can fundamentally change the way you think, act, and lead.


As an EMBA student, you can personalize your degree to meet your career goals. Electives offered exclusively in the EMBA — as well as those offered across other W. P. Carey MBA platforms — add depth and diversity to your experience, honing your skills or developing new strengths.

EMBA electives change every year. Sample EMBA electives include Leadership Strategy and Systemic Innovation. Cross-platform electives allow you to take a deeper dive in areas such as marketing, healthcare management, finance, and supply chain.

EMBA Schedule

Executive MBA classes meet twice monthly on Fridays and Saturdays, allowing you to minimize time away from work and maximize studying and class preparation. Small classes of fewer than 50 students allow you to network with peers, faculty and alumni from the program as you develop lifelong business and personal relationships.
