Gabelli School of Business – Fordham University - Executive MBA
Fordham Executive MBA Program Structure
The Fordham Executive MBA program at the Gabelli School of Business is a 22-month program designed to allow busy executives to earn their MBA while continuing their current jobs. Classes for the program meet for one three-day weekend per month, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Students register for three courses per term at either the Lincoln Center or Westchester campuses. Some four-day “residential” courses are also held at an executive conference center in Westchester. Additionally, EMBA students are typically required to take one full week off work to attend a five-day “international residential” experience, comprising a week of consulting projects and company visits in a foreign country. For the past few years, international residential destinations have been China, Brazil, South Africa, and Turkey.
Fordham Executive MBA students must complete 11 core courses: Financial Accounting/Financial Statement Analysis; Managing the Transnational Firm; Quantitative Methods and Decision Analysis; Managerial Global Economics; Managerial Accounting; Financial Environment; Marketing Management and Strategy; ICS in the Transnational Firm; Transnational Management and Systems Operations; Contemporary Issues in U.S. and International Business Law; and Business Policy. From there, EMBA students pursue a concentration in Management Systems, which entails taking three further mandatory courses, research for final project, and two electives from a slate of seven courses ranging from International Trade and Development to Contemporary Ethical Issues in Business.
