Roberto C. Goizueta, the namesake for Emory University’s Goizueta Business School, once said, “Business schools today cannot just reflect business the way it is. They must teach business the way it will be.”
To meet the varying needs of ambitious professionals, Goizueta Business School announced today a new online format of its Executive MBA Program. Ranked among the top-20 EMBA programs in the U.S. by The Economist, Financial Times, Poets & Quants, and U.S. News & World Report, Goizueta is the highest-ranked EMBA program nationwide to offer an online option.
Goizueta now offers its top-ranked EMBA in on-campus, hybrid, and online formats and is currently accepting EMBA Program applications for a fall 2022 start date, including the addition of the fully online option.
The online EMBA students will take classes exclusively through Goizueta’s Global Classrooms which provides real-time experiences as well as greater flexibility and collaboration through breakout room options, whiteboard technology, and sharing of common assets to store files and presentations.
An Innovative, Adaptable Format for the Online Executive MBA Student
Spanning 18 months, the program will require 27 core credits, six immersion credits, and 24 elective credits to graduate. Applications are now being accepted for the first cohort which starts in the fall of 2022.
This innovative, adaptable format is a welcome trend among ambitious, mid-career professionals, who are fueling unprecedented global demand for graduate management education, particularly as the pandemic accelerates the need for leaders to prepare for the rapidly-evolving future of work.
The fully online option follows a rigorous research process led by Jaclyn Conner, associate dean for Executive MBA.
“We started our EMBA hybrid format in 2020 with tremendous success—thanks to our extraordinary faculty, dedicated program staff, and world-class remote learning tools like our Global Classrooms,” said Conner.
We dive in today confident in our capabilities to deliver a high-touch, unmatched online Executive MBA experience for our professional students. Goizueta is poised to take digital learning to the next level by providing business professionals with a truly immersive, dynamic experience from anywhere in the world.Jaclyn Conner, associate dean for Executive MBA
Regardless of delivery format, Goizueta’s EMBA students take the same courses taught by the same faculty and receive the same intensive leadership development and Career Management Center support. Goizueta’s EMBA may be completed in 18 months and includes global immersion and executive skills immersion experiences, which online EMBA students may choose to complete in-person or remotely.
“Time is the greatest challenge for our Executive MBA students. We are focused on making our programs accessible and convenient for busy working professionals—without sacrificing the quality, community, and reputation of the Goizueta MBA,” said Ed Leonard, senior associate dean of graduate education. “We are incredibly enthusiastic to provide a 100 percent online EMBA experience that can reach working professionals worldwide.”
Emory University’s Goizueta Business School’s Executive MBA program is ranked No. 11 in the U.S. by The Economist, No. 12 in the U.S. by the Financial Times, No. 8 by Poets & Quants, and No. 19 by U.S. News & World Report. The program also continues to hold the No. 1 spot in Georgia, according to the U.S. News rankings earlier this year.
