The Leadership Executive MBA (LEMBA) maximizes core business expertise, executive leadership and social responsibility - because when leaders use their sharpened business acumen for the greater good, the result is both a better bottom line and a better world.
Specifically designed for mid- to senior-level professionals, the compressed schedule allows LEMBA students to graduate in only six academic quarters. Classes meet once a month in compact, 2- to 3-day modules (typically Thursday-Saturday). The Leadership Executive MBA broadens leaders’ perspectives through multi-disciplinary and multi-industry exposure, as well as from coursework, reflection, rigorous application, and dedicated one-on-one executive coaching. Participants leverage faculty expertise and the mindshare of their classmates in a cohort-based classroom setting, and the resulting impact is immediate, profound, and sustainable.
Founded on the principles of our Executive Leadership Program, the first two quarters of the Leadership EMBA focus on executive leadership, enabling deep learning about the complexities of leadership and requiring each student to reflect on his or her place at work, at home, and in the larger society. This is followed by three quarters emphasizing advanced business education – principles, tools, and practices. The final capstone quarter synthesizes the leadership and core business curriculum and challenges participants to explore and elevate their positions of social responsibility and impact in both their professional and personal lives.
