Program description

EMBA from Melbourne Business School (MBS)An innovative, international program | A rewarding experience

Melbourne Business School recognises that it is increasingly difficult for senior managers to devote time to postgraduate study and enhance the skills required to perform more effectively at the top executive level.

The MBS Executive MBA (EMBA) revolutionary, intensive, modular structure which enables senior executive participants to combine study with an already busy schedule

The MBS EMBA features a revolutionary, intensive, modular structure which enables senior executive participants to combine study with an already busy schedule. The EMBA is structured so that participants can separate their study from work and personal commitments.

Melbourne Business School's EMBA is completed through four, one-month, fully-residential, intensive modules spread across a 14 month period. Participants return home and to their workplaces to apply their learning between modules. There are no formal study requirements during those intervals.

The program’s dynamic learning experience is enhanced through:

  • limited numbers (approx 30-40 selected for each intake)
  • a demanding, exciting and creative program with a diverse range of learning methods (varying from interactive class discussions, case studies and group problem solving to experiential activities and formal presentations)
  • the provision of a true executive peer network of senior, like-minded professionals
  • participants who bring real experience and current business situations to the classroom, analyse key principles and test management concepts
  • a global ‘classroom’ located in Australia (Melbourne), USA, Germany and China
  • a leading faculty from around the world.

The program is ranked in The Financial Times Global Top 45 EMBA programs, a testament to its relevant, rigorous curriculum tailored specifically for senior executives.
