Fundamentals + so much more
Executive MBA Programs offer fundamental business knowledge and the necessary framework for better decision-making. EMBA Programs also help students apply the tools, skills, and new knowledge to solve problems.
Core courses address those business fundamentals. EMBA Programs may use some variations in their core courses and core course titles, but they cover key business functions. Examples of popular core course areas at EMBA Programs include the following:
- Strategy/Business Policy
- Operations Management
- Organizational Behavior
- Statistics or Quantitative Methods
- International Business
- Business Law
- Professional Development
- Public Policy
EMBA Programs often build from their core base in a number of ways:
- Many EMBA Programs also incorporate elective courses that allow students to dig deeper into a specialized area of interest.
- In some programs, students can take a set of related electives to complete a concentration in an area.
- Special topic seminars, workshops, and short courses on hot topics are also common elements.
Throughout the Executive MBA Program, Vijendra Gupta leveraged his classroom knowledge.
“It improved my workplace performance right from the beginning as I could relate and apply whatever new concepts I learned during the classes to my business,” says Gupta, managing director, VNG Group of Companies.
Gupta revamped his approach to decision-making and gained a better understanding of his core business responsibilities. It also boosted his confidence to operate anywhere in the world, resulting in the expansion of his business beyond Indian borders into Dubai.
“Due to the flexibility offered by the Executive MBA, I was learning and working at the same time. This gave me a chance to apply my learning almost simultaneously in my business.”
