Our core curriculum is a series of focused, rigorous, and relevant courses taken primarily during the first year of the EMBA Program. Our faculty has designed the core to give you an in-depth mastery of the academic disciplines and applied functional areas necessary for every business leader’s success.
First-year EMBA students are divided into clusters of students who take every core course together. Clusters are further broken down into learning teams of about five to six students with diverse professional backgrounds, a structure that fosters cross-disciplinary collaboration from the start of the program.
Core courses are:
- Corporate Finance
- Financial Accounting
- Managerial Statistics
- Managerial Economics
- Strategy Formulation
- Leadership and Organizational Change
- Marketing Strategy
- Operations Management and Strategy
- Business Analytics
- Global Economic Environment I and II
Note that each core course is taught by several different professors each term; the professors and syllabi linked above are merely samples of what may be offered in a given term.
