EMBA in Innovation Leadership
Upcoming Start Dates October 28, January 6
Why This Program Is Needed
In today's global business environment, every part of an organization must run in perfect alignment and at peak efficiency in order to meet the demands imposed by relentless global competitors. However, the same organization must also be able to regenerate itself to seek bold new directions that offer new opportunities for motivation and growth, be they new product categories, new markets, new partnerships, new processes, or new organizational structures. For example, think of Apple's foray into portable MP3 music players with their famous iPod, which represented a substantial departure from their main lines of computer hardware and software; yet which, successfully done, garnered over 90% share of the MP3 market within three years of its launch, at premium prices.
For Whom This Program Is Designed
Our online Executive MBA with a focus on Innovation Leadership is designed for advanced-career professionals who aspire to lead their companies towards much higher performance. We focus on developing leaders who are ready and able to identify a bold new venture, to convince other leaders of its merits and gain their commitment, and to ensure that the venture is successfully accomplished.
Our goal is to prepare advanced-career professionals and managers for senior managerial positions, and to prepare them for success, all without interrupting their career momentum. To accomplish our educational goal we provide a highly-qualified faculty, a variety of educational tools and techniques, some of the most advanced online teaching and learning applications available, and a carefully designed suite of courses delivered in a focused and flexible schedule.
There are fourteen courses: ten foundation courses, three specialization courses including one elective, and one capstone integration project. Courses are completed in a seven-week fixed-agenda format. If courses are taken in a typical seven-week fixed-agenda format, the duration of the EMBA program is two years, five months.
The Online Experience
To maximize the global learning experience throughout the program our students will participate in "live" seminars and/or conferences with experienced leaders from global organizations. Our students and faculty are not limited by geographical boundaries, providing a new educational experience that allows learners to think with a global perspective while working on case studies and projects with other colleagues from around the world.
Individuals wishing to gain admission to the Executive MBA in Innovation Leadership will have an undergraduate degree and five years of work experience, including two years in management.
