The first degree of its kind from a top business school, the new offering shows the power of online learning to meet rising demand for executive-level education.
ATLANTA, GA – Jan. 26, 2022 – Emory University’s Goizueta Business School is launching the first top-20 online Executive MBA (EMBA) program to extend the depth, selectivity, and structure of a highly ranked executive degree program with the reach and flexibility of an online environment.
Emory’s online EMBA program will be offered in flexible settings on evenings and weekends so that ambitious, seasoned professionals can further their career remotely and outside of traditional working hours. Spanning 18 months, the program will require 27 core credits, 6 immersion credits, and 24 elective credits to graduate. Applications are now being accepted for the first cohort which starts in the fall of 2022.
Goizueta now offers its top-ranked EMBA in on-campus, hybrid, and online formats. This innovative, adaptable online format is a welcome trend among ambitious, mid-career professionals, who are fueling unprecedented global demand for graduate management education, especially as the pandemic accelerates the need for leaders to prepare for a rapidly evolving future of work. The program is launched in partnership with Emeritus, the global leader in making high-quality education accessible and affordable to individuals, companies, and governments around the world. A shared commitment to meeting this demand, empowering today’s leaders, building community, and expanding access to high-caliber education offerings has made Emeritus and Emory University natural partners.
“Our innovative global classroom improves the student experience and engages faculty, bringing the feeling of in-person learning to an online environment. We’re committed to preparing principled leaders to have a positive influence on business and society, and this is bringing us one step closer to fulfilling that mission on a global scale,” said Ed Leonard, Senior Associate Dean for Graduate Programs at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School. “And working with Emeritus will allow the Goizueta Business School to expand its global reach and create greater access to our learning community.”
“This partnership with Emory University’s prestigious Goizueta Business School to offer the first top-20 online EMBA program will help further our mission of providing global access to high-quality education by broadening the spectrum of educational offerings for working professionals.
