About this course

The EMBA classroom experience is designed by our world class faculty to combine thought-provoking lectures with lively discussions. Watch Strategy faculty (and EMBA Faculty Director) Professor Charles Hill lead a discussion on the boom and bust of the early video game industry while synthesizing student insights and perspectives to improve understanding.

The Executive MBA Program is designed for mid-to-senior level managers, executives, and entrepreneurs. Enrolled students typically have more than 10 years of work experience including prior management/leadership responsibility. The class schedule is formatted to allow students to continue working while they pursue their studies–in fact, the expectation is that they will remain employed in a position that allows them to apply what they are learning while they complete the program. Students also bring their current and prior experience into the classroom to enrich the learning experience of their fellow students.

The 21-month Executive MBA Program is a demanding integrated general-management curriculum which emphasizes leadership development and strategic thinking as well as the application of decision-making tools. Based on UW Graduate School enrollment policy, the EMBA Program is considered a full-time enrollment program (at least 10 credits per term). A total of 70 credits is required. The degree earned is the Master of Business Administration (the same degree awarded in the Full-time MBA program).
