EMBA

Providing real world skills and a broader worldview

Rapid changes in technology and geopolitics have transformed the world of commerce—every company today truly competes on a global stage. The “globalization” of business demands new kinds of leadership skills and richer multicultural perspectives. It also demands a different kind of executive MBA training.

Our 18-month EMBA program offers tracks in Global, National Defense, and Critical Infrastructure Protection and prepares today's executives for the new competitive realities. You receive a world-class business education, without the career interruption of a traditional graduate business degree. We know how busy your life is and that is why we offer a hybrid EMBA program in Arlington as well as an online EMBA program.
