Emory University Executive MBA Program Structure

The Emory University Executive MBA program at the Goizueta Business School is intended for those with greater work experience and several years spent in management-level positions. The program has two tracks–Weekend EMBA and Modular EMBA–which enable the student to complete the program in 16-20 months. The program begins with an orientation week. The Weekend EMBA is held according to a five term structure, while the Modular EMBA is structured along eight quarterly residencies.

The program begins in mid-September. Students will begin with three terms of business foundation courses and then three Immersions. Twenty-one credits will be comprised of electives.


The Emory University Executive MBA program focuses more on executive management and strategic skills for longer-term professionals than the other MBA programs. Emory Executive MBA students have an elective requirement, which can be satisfied through an independent study that allows students to dive deeper into areas of interest than other elective courses might.
