The University of Rochester's Simon School of Business has changed-up its Executive MBA program, adding a new leadership module and an online component.
The new leadership curriculum takes place over one year and complements other elements of the EMBA program. The leadership module runs alongside the program's existing business plan module, where participants practically apply their skills to develop a business plan for a new venture or a new product or service.
Additionally, the program will also introduce an optional online component, which would limit the number of times participants will need to visit the campus to one weekend per month. Participants who don't take advantage of the online component will have one additional Saturday per month on campus.
The Simon School's EMBA program takes 22 months to complete. Participants in the most recent cohort has 12 years of work experience, on average.
