New course format requires less time away from the office

The University at Buffalo School of Management has recently announced plans to re-launch its EMBA program with a new structure.

Beginning this fall, EMBA classes will be held during Friday and Saturday of every third weekend; as opposed to during the week. With the new format, participants will be able to complete the program in 20 months.

According to a press release from the University of Buffalo, the course is designed with working professionals in mind: "The new schedule retains all the content, but packages it in a way that reduces the amount of time away from the office during the regular workweek by 25 percent."

The program will also provide tutoring in quantitative content between class weeks, either on-campus or over the web.
