Program description:

The EMBA program is identical to the full-time MBA in every way but the schedule. That means you apply tomorrow what you learn in the classroom today. You’re earning your MBA at Columbia and suddenly you’re infusing your industry with new ideas, offering better approaches, and making an indelible mark. The Columbia Executive MBA understands your realities. It prepares you to accelerate your career potential, bring game-changing ideas forward, and prepare for a shifting global economy — all while staying in your current job. The three New York–based options will enable you to complete the program successfully: EMBA-New York Friday/Saturday,  EMBA-New York Saturday and EMBA-Americas.
