This week-long module lays the foundation for the development of skills necessary for success in the EMBA program: Computer Applications, Business Math, Consequential Leadership and Team Building.
The twelve required core courses cover the fundamental building blocks of a sound business education. These include: Financial Accounting, Managerial Economics, Management and Organizations, Quantitative Tools for Managers, Marketing, Foundations of Finance, Foundations of Strategy, Managerial Accounting, Supply Chain Management, Corporate Finance, Entrepreneurship, Financial Statement Analysis
EMBA students choose 3 courses applicable to career goals based on a rank-order of preferences identified by the class. A sample of the courses that may be offered includes: Pricing, Valuation, Raising Capital, Competitive Analysis, Marketing Strategy, Investments, Decision Models, Investments, and Emerging Markets Strategy
The thesis allows each EMBA student to develop skills and expertise specific to his/her career goals, and industry or organizational challenges through the application of knowledge gained in the program to address a key research problem of interest to their companies.
