Today, more than ever before, organizations are seeking new talent and new skills to strategically lead companies in the digital era.  In response to the evolving marketplace, Walsh University’s DeVille School of Business is proud to announce its newest degree program, the Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA).  The EMBA is a cohort program designed to provide managers and executives with outstanding professional development opportunities in 21st century leadership.

"The EMBA program is innovative and practical as it connects industry leaders from the local and regional industries," said Dr. Raj G. Javalgi, Dean of the DeVille School of Business.  The 15-month EMBA program will be delivered in Walsh’s new Marlene and Joe Toot Global Learning Center. 

EMBA students will meet a few Saturdays per month, along with participating in online activities in between the in-person sessions.  An all-inclusive tuition will cover all costs - including textbooks, food and beverages during the in-person sessions, and the global learning experience.

EMBA students will sharpen management and leadership skills, enabling them to tackle tomorrow’s global business challenges, while gaining cutting-edge perspectives from successful business leaders.  Each student will also be assigned a leadership coach to work with them during the program.

Faculty for the EMBA Program have been specially selected to leverage their significant leadership and professional experiences, coupled with their strong academic training.  Dynamic guest speakers, engaged discussions, a global learning experience and a capstone project will round out the experience.
