Program summary

Executive MBA

Program description

Executive MBA students complete two years of study in general management, leading to an MBA degree. The program serves mid-career executives preparing for the next level, as well as senior executives who wish to enhance their skills and leadership effectiveness.

Teamwork is the hallmark of the Kellogg Executive MBA (EMBA) experience, both in and out of the classroom.

As they learn, Executive MBA students are able to immediately apply both functional and managerial skills in their jobs. The concentrated studies curriculum integrates all managerial disciplines within management's economic, social and political environments.

Application and Admission Requirements

When making its decisions, the EMBA admissions committee considers numerous factors including work experience, academic history, recommendations, company sponsorship, personal interview and the body of the application itself. Most important, however, is work experience, including a candidate's work history and current role and responsibilities in his or her organization. All candidates should have a minimum of eight to 10 years of work experience.

Degree and diploma etc.

Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA).

Company sponsorship

Sponsorship is an important component of each application. Sponsorship consists of two elements:
  • time away from work in order to attend classes and be successful in the program
  • financial support

    The level of financial sponsorship may vary, but every company must provide the necessary time away. A letter of sponsorship from the organization is required for every applicant and should spell out both kinds of support in detail.

    An organization's sponsorship commitment also involves working with admitted students to put together a career progression plan and to develop a strategy for the participant's continued growth in the organization after graduation. The admissions committee views the level of sponsorship as an indicator of the level of investment the organization is making in the candidate's career development.
  • Expenses / Tuition Fees

    For the 2007 September North American Program, the 2008 January North American Program, and the 2008 Miami Program, tuition and fees are $67,500 per year for two years. Tuition includes housing and meals during Live-In weeks, weekly lunches, and all books and supplies.
