New 19-month program to focus on leadership innovation

The University of California at Berkeley's Haas School of Business has announced the launch of a new EMBA, called the "MBA for Executives" program.

The program will take 19 months to complete, and classes will meet every three weeks, on Thursday through Saturday. The program's curriculum features a strong focus in leadership innovation, with specialized courses such as "Problem Finding, Problem Solving," and "Applied Innovation."

The program draws on insights from alumni surveys from the Berkeley-Columbia Executive MBA Program, which closes in 2013. Participants in the new program are expected to have 12 years of professional experience, on average.

Applications will be accepted starting next month. Information sessions will be held in Berkeley on August 30th, in San Francisco on September 13th, and in Los Angeles on September 30th. For details, please see the list of upcoming information sessions
