Executive Master's of Business Administration (EMBA)


Return to Programs Return to: Programs

The Lally School offers an Executive Master’s of Business Administration degree for those individuals with at least six or more years of work experience in a management capacity. The typical EMBA student is one who is both motivated to assume senior management responsibility and willing to make a strong commitment to the program of study.

Executive MBA classes are scheduled all day Friday and Saturday on alternating weekends over two academic years. Participants are expected to continue in their full-time employment and are encouraged to apply, in their work environments, techniques and theories they learn as they progress through the program. Upon successful completion of the program, the participant receives the Master’s of Business Administration degree from Rensselaer, a degree that is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.

The program curriculum has been carefully designed to achieve a logical sequencing and integration of subjects. Students proceed through the program in a cohort and are assigned to small study groups. The faculty team is experienced in executive education, as both tenured and clinical faculty collaborate in delivering the program in a highly interactive mode.

Considering the growing importance of the global marketplace, the program features an international residency at the beginning of the second year of study. The residency entails an intensive eight-day module in a European or Asian Pacific venue where students visit companies, meet government officials, and receive instruction on global political economy topics that cultivate appreciation of doing business on a global scale.
