The Executive Leadership Master of Business Administration is designed around the theme of "Leading Through Change." The concentration is intended for high performing individuals who have potential for organizational leadership and who will likely hold C-Suite positions. The Executive Leadership MBA is designed to develop skills and abilities required to effectively and ethically lead in dynamic and highly competitive business settings. In addition to addressing the critically important issues in all functional business disciplines, this program has a particular emphasis on accelerating participant skill-sets in crisis management, global competitive issues, supply chain challenges, stakeholder leadership, and in understanding, leading, and creating change across the organization. Emphasizing both in-class and experiential activities, learning takes place face-to-face as well as synchronously, using the latest online technologies.
The Executive Leadership MBA is our newest concentration. What makes it unique is that it fills the gap in the MBA market for individuals who want more than a generic, traditional part-time MBA, and are not yet at the corporate level required to enroll in a traditional executive MBA program. Our curriculum has a strong and highly engaging leadership focus while providing technical skills and abilities necessary for a successful transition into high-level positions.
The Executive Leadership concentration is offered in Tysons Corner and takes 28 months to complete. A cohort of students takes fourteen 8-week courses, one course at a time, for a total of 42 credit hours. Each course meets face-to-face for four hours at the beginning, four hours at mid-term and four hours at the end of the session on a Saturday. Instruction between face-to-face sessions is online, using synchronous and asynchronous teaching methods.
