The Robinson 17-month Executive MBA (EMBA) program is designed for professionals who possess significant (approximately seven years or more post-undergraduate degree) professional work experience as well as experience in a management role (managing people, projects, or assets). On average, EMBA students are 40 years old with fifteen years of professional work experience. The purpose of the program is to prepare experienced professionals to excel as executive leaders in an ever-changing global business environment.
The EMBA program format is team-based and lock-step. Students begin in August/September and remain together throughout the course of the program. Students receive an MBA in general management. In addition, they will earn their Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and 3 certificates in analytics, fintech, and change leadership. All classes are held at Georgia State’s Buckhead Campus every other Friday (5:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.) and Saturday (9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.). Covering the most critical business topics, the EMBA curriculum touches all aspects of the enterprise as it pertains to today’s global markets. The curriculum is designed to equip students with a broader business perspective, strategic thinking skills, and the executive leadership skills necessary to advance in their career.
An integral part of Robinson’s EMBA program is the International Business Residency, an intensive exposition into the management and business practices of companies around the world. Students will travel to Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa at the end of their program. They also have the opportunity to participate in optional residencies.. Past optional residencies have included Cuba and Silicon Valley. During the residencies, students meet with company leaders (both indigenous and American-owned companies) and government officials, as well as participate in a consulting project.
