Columbia Business School’s Executive MBA (EMBA) programs transform high-potential executives into global business leaders. Columbia leads the way in educating managers who want to enhance already successful careers with the practical and research-based knowledge that comes from a top-rated MBA program.
Action-oriented teaching, a global focus, cutting-edge research and an extensive network are among the competitive advantages that have consistently earned Columbia a top spot in Executive MBA program rankings. New York’s vitality is reflected in every aspect of Columbia’s EMBA programs, including the quality and energy of our students, the expertise and international outlook of our faculty members, the frequent guest lectures by prominent business leaders and the School’s commitment to innovation and growth.
The Columbia Executive MBA competitive advantages are highlighted in:
Flexibility and Teamwork
Students in the Columbia EMBA program in New York, which enrolls about 250, complete the same degree as full-time Columbia MBA students. The collaborative atmosphere capitalizes on the wealth of students’ knowledge of the workplace. Participants attend classes on Friday and Saturday every other weekend.
Columbia’s pioneering EMBA-Global joint program with London Business School, launched in 2001, offers monthly classes alternating between the two of the world’s financial capitals. Graduates hold full MBA degrees from both schools.
In 2002, we extended that concept with the innovative Berkeley-Columbia Executive MBA program, which blends the advantages and perspectives of Wall Street and Silicon Valley for a distinctive academic experience.
The Columbia EMBA attracts the most talented individuals from 3,000 multinational firms in New York and their counterparts across the globe. Personal attention is a hallmark, and a diverse selection of electives assures that the degree is both rigorous and relevant.
Global. New York. Columbia
Location, a global focus, intellectual capital, an extensive network and impressive momentum are among the competitive advantages that have established the preeminence of the Columbia Executive MBA programs.
An Innovative Structure
The first three terms of the EMBA program focus on core courses, much like a traditional MBA curriculum. The final two terms adopt an executive education approach, with an emphasis on electives which include international seminars and block weeks in Asia, Europe, and South America.
