About this course
Squeezed margins, changing markets, generating new growth — today’s complex business environment requires more than theory alone. It requires leaders with real-world vision, competitive foresight and management expertise.
Our executive MBA (EMBA) program melds our distinctive systems approach to business theory with practical application. Peer mentoring, group projects and a capstone consulting project with a Northeast Ohio company offer collaborative opportunities to apply professional skills and insights.
The central concern of the admission committee is selecting candidates who will be successful in the program. The admission committee does not use a rigid set of criteria to make this decision. The admission criteria that are considered include the following:
- Graduation from an accredited undergraduate college or university
- A minimum of two years of relevant work experience in a professional or entry level managerial position
- A minimum cumulative grade point average in undergraduate work of 3.0 out of a possible 4.0
- A score of at least 500 on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT). If the applicant has taken the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or has an earned master's degree or doctorate in any field from an accredited institution, that applicant is exempt from taking the GMAT.
