You're only 17 months away from an Executive MBA (EMBA) degree from our highly ranked program. Through the Marquette University Executive MBA, you’ll pursue collaborative, high-impact learning experiences and become a more effective leader with preparation to analyze complex situations, make sound decisions, and motivate people to do their best.

Top instructors. Small classes. Applied learning. A close-knit community.  The Marquette Executive MBA experience advances each student’s growth and goals through a curriculum that prioritizes team-based experiences, ethical leadership, interdisciplinary curiosity, and a desire to create positive changes in the world.  Executive MBA program highlights include:

Management-Level Classmates: Each student brings a unique perspective to the cohort.  EMBA students thrive by creating community with their peers who have diverse leadership, academic, and industry backgrounds. The result is a program infused with meaningful relationships that last well beyond graduation.

Accelerated: With a 17-month accelerated format, the Marquette Executive MBA is challenging yet flexible.  The program is offered with a schedule that works for busy professionals.  Executive MBA students will meet in person with their peers every other Saturday in Marquette’s new College of Business Administration building.  Between Saturday sessions, students work individually and with their teams to complete coursework.  EMBA students report loving the in-person dimension of the program to build lasting relationships while also having the freedom to work on their own schedule. 

Applied Learning & Next Day Impact: Students and faculty will often share: “What you learn within the weekend, you’ll directly apply at work on Monday.”  Within the Marquette EMBA program, “there is no second row.”  Students are enthusiastic, engaged, and work together within teams and applied learning experiences to build the knowledge, skills, and confidence to immediately improve their professional contributions, organizations, and opportunities.

Global Scope with a Local Focus: Through the Marquette Executive MBA, students grow in their understanding of global and local issues affecting business today.  From the program’s immersive international trip and concentration in global business to connecting with businesses and organizations throughout the Milwaukee area, students expand their abilities to lead with confidence while connecting what’s good for business with what’s good for people.
