Ranked among the top programs by Businessweek and Financial Times, the Executive MBA program challenges senior managers to step out of their comfort zone and go even further — on both a professional and personal level. With a focus on experience-driven learning and collaboration among peers, you will be part of a rewarding learning experience and emerge an even stronger leader.
Designed around a “live case” model, students undertake applied research projects in which they dig deep into every facet of their own organization, culminating in a comprehensive strategic plan they can implement.
EMBA Program Highlights
Each cohort is assigned a class advisor to act as a mentor and coach throughout the program — an invaluable part of the learning process.
Small class size
An average class size of 20 students ensures personal attention, a supportive community, and a high level of collaboration between faculty and peers.
Global study trip
Students experience global business firsthand by traveling abroad and working directly with company executives in the host country.
Applied research project
Students study their own organizations as "live case" studies and create an actionable strategic plan as their capstone project.
Respected, accessible faculty
EMBA faculty are highly regarded in business and academia — but more importantly — they make themselves available and are deeply committed to students’ success.
Classes meet once every three weeks on the weekend to accommodate the busy professional’s schedule. The Executive MBA (EMBA) program is offered in Southern California and Northern California.
A focus on ethical leadership and corporate social responsibility is at the core of the Graziadio mission and is incorporated into all facets of the program.
