Executive MBA Course Curriculum & Plan of Study

The Drexel EMBA course curriculum was built from the ground up specifically to streamline the time you’ll be expected to be on campus taking classes. By incorporating online studies and reading and preparation time into your EMBA schedule, you can easily integrate the curriculum into your work and personal life.

The EMBA calendar here represents the entire seven-quarter calendar – 18 months of study delivered over 20 months (with Decembers off). The Executive MBA schedule and curriculum are built around 19 courses encompassing 22 disciplines. Each course is presented within seven different types of executive learning experiences – including in-classroom sessions, online courses, residencies, team projects and a global capstone immersion experience. Learn more about EMBA course details and how you can successfully plan for an Executive MBA.
