Program Description

The goal of Executive MBA is to educate leaders, not simply managers. We do this by delivering the essential knowledge of business functions with our innovative curricula. We help shape our students' capacity to think both functionally and critically. We strive to teach students to learn how to work as a team. We also teach students to understand the strategic and operating implications of new technologies.

The MBA Program for Current and Future CEOs

KU E-MBA, the first 2-year master's program started in 2003 in Korea, is a specialized intensive program, which provides the enhanced quality of education. KU E-MBA program mainly concentrates
on improving abilities of current executives and developing the potential of future executives. Thus, the program is designated for the executives and directors who have more than

The Best Quality of Education for the Leaders

The goal of E-MBA program is to provide the best quality of education in order to create specialists who will lead organizations in an age of keen competition. The students will be able to learn various global manners including table manner, wine-tasting technique, and art-viewing. These students will achieve confidence and competence as E-MBA students by interfacing
with the managers and CEOs of the future. Furthermore, the International Residency Program in China and North America held during the school breaks will help the students

Intensive Module System

E-MBA program provides intensive education and training primarily oriented toward not only specified courses in business administration but overall business administration as well base
on practical management theories. The program will be conducted on every Fridays and Saturdays, as each subject will be completed in two weeks based on its modules. Thus,
intensive practical coursework offered by E-MBA program can be one of the main differences between ordinary MBA programs and E-MBA program. Consequently, the students will interface intensively with professors and other students by involving in class discussions. Specifying a major and writing a thesis are not necessary for students, but the students may study their own field of interests through 'Independent Study' and 'Executive Learning and Interactive Team Exercise', which offer students the opportunities to study one-to-one with a professor or participate in small-group discussions.
