Emerging Leaders | Master of Business Administration

The MBA for Emerging Leaders (MBA-EL) is designed for early career professionals who have advanced into leadership roles or who have been identified as future leaders by their organizations. Candidates for the program are expected to have 2-3 years of professional experience and must be nominated with a letter of support by at least one person in a supervisory role.

About the MBA Emerging Leaders Program

The MBA-EL program parallels the traditional MBA program in course content, but is designed with several distinctive features. Coursework is delivered in a blended, weekend cohort model. As a student in the MBA-EL program, you will take the same courses as the traditional MBA; however, you will meet face-to-face over the course of four Saturdays during a term. Additional online coursework of approximately 3-4 hours per week compliments each course in the program.

Program highlights

Each of your professors will emphasize practical application of theories and skills taught throughout the program. You'll be expected to bring opportunities, challenges and business problems from your work experience to your coursework. Much of your learning will focus on case studies, but not those drawn from traditional publications. The MBA-EL program will explore genuine cases from your workplace. In each course, you will develop business solutions to real problems that you bring to class.
