The Executive MBA offered by the Foster School of Business at the University of Washington features a highly collaborative learning environment and is taught by highly experienced professionals from a variety of industries. The program’s coursework is relevant delivering an education that helps make better decisions, improves your managerial skills, and enhances your leadership abilities to solve real-world business and organizational problems. The 21-month program features a demanding, integrated, general management curriculum that emphasizes leadership development and strategic thinking as well as the application of decision making tools. The first year courses of the 68-credt program focus on building blocks of business, accounting, economics, management, statistics, and team building. During the second year, courses explore connections between operations, finance, strategy and leadership including marketing and entrepreneurship. The course sequence is designed as a cohort based model; meaning, EMBA classes are completed in a predetermined progression and as a group. There are no electives within this program. Grades are based on both individual achievement and study based assignments. With opportunities for both individual learning and group involvement, students come away with a rich and valuable experience. They include lively discussions, one on one interaction with world class faculty, motivating study teams, case studies, and using laboratories and bringing results back to class for further discussion and analysis, a valuable return on investment for sponsoring companies. This program provides firsthand knowledge about business practices, as well as the impact of legal, political, historical, and economic issues in different countries through an international immersion in the second year. The EMBA Business Plan Competition, a Capstone experience for second year students, is designed to promote new ideas and venture creation by providing a forum in which they can present new business concepts to local venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, and investors. Most classes are held once per month, on 4 consecutive days, normally Wednesday through to Saturday.
