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, reading and preparation time into your EMBA schedule, you can easily integrate the curriculum into your work and personal life.

The EMBA calendar below represents the entire six-quarter calendar – 16 months of study delivered over three calendar years.

The program’s hybrid curriculum amplifies LeBow’s rigorous and relevant courses through immersive experiential residencies in an executive education format. Designed to leverage executives’ industry experience and previous learning, each EMBA term has a theme to enhance connection to the integrated content across disciplines while fostering critical thinking and evidence-based decision-making. Integrated term themes include: 

  • Strategic Value and Financial Impact
  • Analytical Leadership and Data-driven Decisions
  • Global Impact
  • Managing the Value Chain
  • Technology Innovation and Competitive Advantage
  • Strategy, Implementation and Leading Change
