Lubin School of Business – Pace University
Pace University Executive MBA Program Structure
The 20-month Pace University Executive MBA (EMBA) program at Lubin School of Business is ideal for experienced managers and professionals. It offers the opportunity to pursue an experiential and project-based MBA in less than two years.
It’s a cohort-based program that was designed to be highly flexible to suit the working professional. Students complete online instruction alongside weekend residencies in New York City every ten weeks. In total, EMBAs will only spend 34 days on campus. The program is broken into nine modules which include individual assignments and team-based projects. Students will have to solve real-world business problems and present their findings to industry experts.
The 20-month Pace University Executive MBA includes eight modules requiring individual and team exercises, and a final capstone module, which combines an individual project and business simulation. Students work on these projects using the Internet platform, Blackboard. Team projects require students to solve contemporary, large-scale business problems utilizing a holistic, cross-disciplinary approach. Students also apply what they learn to specific consulting projects for working companies. The capstone module combines a business simulation experience with an individual student-proposed project, which may be an actual business problem the student is facing or a new business idea the student wishes to explore. Module topics include Business Analysis, Marketing, Corporate Diversification Strategy, Competitive Business Strategy, Corporate Finance, Operations Management, Public Policy, and Organizational Behavior and Change.
Pace EMBA students are welcome to use the resources of the Pace University Career Development Center to meet their professional needs.
Tuition & Financial Aid
The 20-month Pace Executive MBA program costs a total of $78,000 for the class entering in August 2016. This cost includes textbook materials and software, hotel accommodations and meals during residencies, networking events, conference phone fees, and graduation fees.
