The EMBA is a cohort experience that begins annually in January. Classes meet on alternating Fridays and Saturdays during the fall and spring terms. The summers offer a break from regular classroom meetings and focus on practical application through a nonprofit consulting project and international experience.

It is a truly unique program geared toward building executives by offering:

  • An Integrated Curriculum to create a unique classroom experience that enables participants to make connections between disciplines.

  • Leadership development  as a core focus to provide the insight and tools to develop your own, personal leadership philosophy and drive practical application at work and in the community

  • A Cohort Experience that develops lasting relationships with your business peers and transforms the classroom into a place of collaboration and connection.

  • Study Teams to foster diversity of thought and perspective, creating a dynamic learning experience that leverages its members' abilities and provides constructive feedback.

  • Nonprofit Consulting Project that provides exposure to nonprofit boards throughout Charlotte and allows you to employ highly sophisticated management techniques to solve critical issues within those organizations.

  • An International Study Tour to broaden students' perspectives through first-hand exploration of the impact that history, culture, politics, and geography have on a country's business environment.
