Program Overview

Rochester Institute of Technology offers an online Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) for experienced individuals looking to enhance their professional careers. Opposite of that of a traditional MBA program, the EMBA is focused towards individuals who have already established executive positions within their chosen career field and wish to advance their skills in hopes of climbing the corporate ladder. By providing strategic planning and critical thinking skills, this program prepares its students for a vast majority leadership positions.

The curriculum is taught online via distance learning and encompasses the same difficult coursework as the on campus EMBA. Communication and group networking are highly encouraged. Not only will students in this EMBA program learn from highly educated professors, but also from a diverse group of professionals similar to themselves. Individuals have the option of beginning this fifteen month program any semester they prefer. A sample course sequence for a student beginning the program in the fall can be found on the program’s website.
