The Tulane Executive MBA (EMBA) is an accelerated alternate-weekend MBA program designed for experienced professionals to earn an MBA in 17 months. The 48-credit hour, lockstep curriculum offers the advanced business knowledge and management skills managers need to rise to higher challenges, improve career opportunities and drive corporate growth. All students earn a concentration in global strategy, and students may earn a second concentration in finance or management by choosing electives in those areas. The Executive MBA program is offered with an identical curriculum in New Orleans and in Houston with students taking combined classes for the intensive modules and international seminar.
In the months immediately before the EMBA curriculum begins, prep courses in accounting and quantitative skills help to align student skills with the requirements of the early courses in the curriculum. The subsequent orientation and team building sessions will familiarize new students with policies and procedures, and introduce faculty, classmates, and study teams.
The EMBA program begins in January with a week-long session, Intensive Week I. Students complete two courses, including exams, in this 8-day intensive. Here students are reintroduced to academic life, and begin to practice time-management, balancing work, home, and school responsibilities.
A multi-cultural intensive week is held on the New Orleans campus in January of the second year. During this Intensive Week II, students form new global study teams, collaborating and sharing a classroom with their EMBA counterparts from Tulane's Houston program, along with EMBA participants from partner universities in Asia, Europe and Latin America.
After Intensive Week I, classes then move to an alternate weekend structure, where students attend classes on Fridays and Saturdays of alternate weekends. Each set of two courses, a module, is typically completed in 7 weeks.
In the second half of the curriculum, elective courses are introduced. Students can earn finance or management concentrations by selecting the elective course tracks in those areas.
The international business seminar abroad brings a global depth to the program, giving students firsthand knowledge of global business and management practices and focuses on the strategic and operational issues of doing business abroad. Today's markets and their economic interdependence demand that managers understand global strategic imperatives. This essential management knowledge makes the international business experience a critical and required component of the EMBA curriculum.
During the international seminar:
- Students explore the economic, technological, and political environments that influence global business initiatives and discover global business opportunities specific to the host country.
- Students develop a keen understanding of global business challenges and management strategies for meeting those challenges.
- Students gain firsthand knowledge of global business culture and practice through face-to-face interaction with international business leaders.
- Students learn the specific challenges these companies face and the strategies employed to meet these challenges.
- Students often work directly with these global companies to solve real business problems.
For the seminar, we handle all academic and logistical planning, including airfare, ground transportation, logistics, accommodations, group meals, and company visits. These seminar costs are included in the total program cost.
The seminar destination is usually determined eight to twelve months in advance. In past years, seminars have been held in Beijing, Cape Town, and Paris, each presenting students a distinct and culturally unique business environment.
