The McColl Executive MBA is completed in 20-months. The program begins each fall and consists of four terms of academic work and one summer term working on practical application of your management and leadership skills.
In each academic term, related concepts are introduced from different academic disciplines. This flexibility allows for a high degree of topical integration and results in a comprehensive and coherent educational experience. Each discipline has a specific number of class sessions allocated according to a combination of factors including their relevance to the MBA graduate and the complexity of specific concepts.
The Cohort Experience
The cohort format means that your entire 20-month program will put you in the company of a group of 20-30 talented and experienced leaders ready to fully engage on wide-ranging business topics. The degree's targeted focus on individuals with an average of 12-15 years of experience transforms the classroom into a place to learn from peers as well as faculty, to expand spheres of influence, to gain perspectives otherwise not available.
"I developed and improved my business skill capability through the study group process due to the experience level of my classmates and diversity of their professions. This exposed me to new perspectives and effective choices on leadership and problem solving. The greatest learning came out of my team group interactions."
Norm George- President, ByBrands Inc.
The Study Team Experience
The study team experience is integral to the McColl EMBA experience. From the relationships that are developed between you and your peers to the practice of working through a variety of learning situations, our graduates tell us that the study team experience at the McColl School is one of the most valuable learning experiences in the program. Each academic term, groups are assigned and your team will work for one term together. Each group is designed to reflect diversity of thought and experience - this intentional diversity helps the team to leverage one other's strengths and weaknesses. At the end of each term your team will provide you with feedback on your contributions to the group, your areas for growth and your strengths.
International Study Tour
This 7-12 day International Study Tour involves visits with senior executives of overseas firms, meetings with key foreign government officials and frequently includes visits to overseas affiliates of firms employing current participants. On the tour, led by a McColl School faculty member, you will explore first-hand the impact that history, culture, politics, and geography have on a country's business environment. Participants receive a $4000 tuition credit towards the cost of their trip.
Non Profit Consulting Projects
As a member of a team working under the guidance of a faculty member, participants address a managerial problem for a local not-for-profit organization. The consulting projects provide an excellent service to the community while giving participants practice in addressing highly sophisticated management issues and exposure to members of the non-profit board.
