In a pioneering partnership, Columbia Business School and London Business School launched EMBA-Global in May 2001. The 20-month program, which enrolls approximately 65 students from around the world each May, offers classes which alternate between London and New York City, capitalizing on the dual advantages of the world’s business capitals. The program draws faculty members from a pool of more than 400 at the two schools, selecting on the basis of global expertise and teaching excellence. EMBA-Global graduates hold full MBA degrees and privileges from both schools.
EMBA-Global students, who begin their program in May, alternate each month between London and New York City while studying the core curriculum in their first year.
In their second year, students take elective courses in New York, London or both cities. The second year may also include a week long international seminar.
EMBA-Global attracts a certain type of executive: they are exceptional, ambitious, pioneering, innovative and with a global perspective.
