Program Overview

The EMBA program has a well-deserved reputation for exceptional teaching quality and excellent staff support and we re-engineer our course material every year to reflect changes in the global business environment. We want to ensure that our Executives receive an MBA education that is relevant, practical, and timely, which is why we are highly ranked in BusinessWeek, The Wall Street Journal, and Financial Times.

We register you for classes and make sure your class materials are delivered to you so you can begin your EMBA experience without the hassles of interminable lines at the college bookstore or the Registrar’s office.

  • The program, comprised of 57 credits, can be completed in twenty months, with courses conducted from early September to May.
  • A short course, Mathematics for Managers, is offered during the last two weeks of August for incoming students who want a refresher course in College Algebra. In addition, an optional Computers for Managers course is conducted in late August for incoming students who would like a quick hands-on overview of the most essential business software applications.
  • Each term begins with an intensive week of classes in residence at Dolce, Basking Ridge. The week immerses participants in the semester's courses and also fosters a strong sense of camaraderie and class cohesion. Typically, one subject is taught in the morning, followed by another in the afternoon after lunch. Every class has a coffee break with snacks and refreshments. In some cases, short classes are also conducted after dinner. The week-in-residence allows participants to get acquainted with their classmates and their individual learning teams. Students refer to the week-in-residence as an “intensive, yet exhilarating” experience.
  • After the week in residence, all subsequent classes are held on the Newark Campus at 1 Washington Park. This special arrangement allows you to work full time and go to school full time. One subject is taught in the morning followed by a different class in the afternoon. The morning class is held from 8:30-12:15, with a coffee break at 10:15. Lunch is from 12:15 to 1:15. Following lunch, the afternoon class begins at 1:15. There is a coffee break at 3pm and classes end at 5pm. To facilitate your scheduling, a detailed list of every class date for the first year (the first two semesters) can be viewed here.
  • Each participant becomes part of a study group that works as a team on class projects and homework assignments. Valuable contacts and lasting friendships are an important by-product of the study groups.
  • Participants have an exceptional opportunity to interact with international business leaders during a 10 day summer program in China that occurs in June, following their first year in the program.
  • Students can obtain a formal specialization in a certain area by selecting all three of their elective courses in that particular area during the final semester. For example, a participant who chooses all three electives in finance will obtain a formal Finance concentration.
  • The program fee includes parking; the purchase of all books and materials including software; and catered breakfast, lunch and coffee breaks on all class days. Since its establishment in 1980, the only cost borne by the student in the program is the air fare to and from China, the visa fee for China and meals on open days while on the trip.
