Where leaders learn.

Experienced professionals have a sophisticated understanding of what it takes to be successful in business. The Executive MBA is a 54-credit, 20-month program designed to challenge those who’ve prospered in their careers meeting challenges head-on:

  • Professionals with 7-10 years of business experience
  • Professionals who have been identified within their organizations as having leadership potential
  • Students who want to learn and thrive in a diverse, multicultural group

Each course will include additional distance learning components before and after each onsite residency. Prior to each residency, students receive textbooks and access to each course Blackboard site, where they are expected to review the syllabus, assigned readings, pre-module homework, case studies, and group exercises that are required for partial credit towards the residency. Post-residency work will consist of case studies, additional online sessions, and take-home exams that students complete in order to receive full credit for the residency work. 

A new way of doing business.

Led by Johns Hopkins’ internationally recognized faculty, the Executive MBA provides a new way to look at business and connects you with experts, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders who have succeeded in a variety of industries.

You’ll learn in a cohort alongside some of business’ brightest minds. Working together with your peers, you'll:

  • Strengthen your grasp of core business principles while exploring new challenges in special topic sessions and advanced seminar courses
  • Tackle problems in the fields of finance, health care, energy, technology, marketing, the environment, manufacturing, and organizational behavior
  • Participate in intensive, hands-on projects that will take you from the ends of the world to the leading edge of new technology and discoveries
  • Develop a deeper understanding of how humanistic values impact and enhance the way society does business

Learn with a diverse group of skilled professionals.
