Ashridge Executive Education

Global Executive MBA Program Structure

Hult offers many locations for students to enter its Global Executive MBA program, including at Ashridge. Students will study on both the Ashridge Estate and Hult’s campus in Central London during the program, which gives students a chance to work in closer partnership with the city’s businesses.

The program itself follows a similar structure to the Global MBA, also offered by Hult on the Ashridge Estate, except with more flexibility for working professionals. The program can be completed in 18 months if students decide to take summer classes.


Both years in the program start with Leadership Development courses in October, core courses from November to April, and then electives from May to July. Career coaching, like with the One-Year MBA, is taught through the duration of the program until the final month. Then, students complete their Business Challenge group project.

Specializations in the Global EMBA are the same as offered in the One-Year MBA: Marketing, Finance,, Family Business, Business Analytics, Entrepreneurship, and Project Management. Electives in the program are determined by the specialization of the student’s choosing.
