Program Description

The Executive M.B.A. program is designed for participants whose increasing career responsibilities require the development of broad business knowledge and skills. This is accomplished during a relatively condensed schedule while allowing participants to fulfill the demands of their current job. The Executive M.B.A. is designed so that students finish their degree in less than 18 months. After a five-day introductory session, the program meets all day on Saturday of every other week. There are two additional residencies required. There is a 10-12-day international experience in the spring or summer term. The final term begins with a mini-immersion session (Thursday-Saturday). Classes meet 7:45 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Marquette's program is both global and technological. The global focus includes courses on global finance and economics and international management and marketing, culminating with an international experience to examine the similarities and differences of international companies. The tuition includes the international trip.
