Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: List of Majors, Minors, Certificates and Special Programs

The Emerging Leaders MBA (ELMBA) is designed to be a 1-year, full-time, Master of Business Administration program for undergraduates who have recently completed their undergraduate degrees, as well as those with early career experience. It is a cohort program designed for the academically talented individual with a keen interest in experiencing a rigorous MBA program that blends academic challenge, experiential learning, career development, and a team-based learning environment in the Jesuit tradition. 

The 39-credit hour program includes nine core courses, one Capstone course, three elective courses, which may be focused in a particular subject area or in the experiential learning realm.  The program builds upon the academic talents & foundations of students and offers a myriad of “classroom to conference room” avenues such as:  international study, internships, consulting projects, business plan development, company visits, and extensive networking.

Classes are held during the day.  The full-time course load, on average, will be between 4-5 classes.  The two MBA foundation courses of ACCT 500:  Financial Accounting and STAT 500:  Business Statistics must be taken before the start of the program.  Consult with a MBA advisor before registering for equivalents. 

The ELMBA requires a mandatory professional development program that will run throughout the entire course of the program.  Professional development programming will take place on Fridays.  Participation in a global immersion experience, an internship, the Executive Mentor program, and other experiential opportunities is highly encouraged.
