Is This Program Right for Me?
Our EMBA is focused on the things that matter to those ascending to senior leadership roles. Students learn from an enterprise-wide perspective, approaching critical disciplines—like strategy, finance, marketing, and accounting—from a leadership vantage point as tools for driving success. Faculty present these functional areas as supporting leadership activities. And students examine how the assets created in—and the products and services designed by—these fields enable leadership teams throughout an organization to function most effectively.
The EMBA classroom experience is a challenging and energizing one. Participants arrive with an average of 15 years’ professional experience, and the Weatherhead model of classroom interaction allows faculty and students to share their knowledge and expertise. Furthermore, projects assigned across courses and disciplines enable students to apply what they have learned in their work environment to their scholastic undertakings.
The Weatherhead EMBA is organized around four elements:
- Developing leadership skills at the levels of self, team, organization and society
- The sociopolitical structures in which leadership is most needed—including government, the world economy and the rapidly changing realm of technology
- The language of business, with a special focus on how it is spoken in the boardroom
- Achieving change in organizations by leading design-oriented teams
These four pieces fit together to create a leadership package that the student executive cultivates to assume a more responsible and influential position in an existing organization, or to build a dynamic new organization. Together, these skills help leaders act with confidence and decisiveness in the face of uncertainty.
