Overview of Massachusetts Executive MBA Programs
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) offers a 20-month EMBA program. Students attend classes every three weeks on Fridays and Saturdays, with a one-week module held every six months. Students take classes in strategic marketing, organizational processes, and leadership strategies. Prospective students must first complete an online form to indicate their interest in the program. They can then get together an online application that includes a statement of purpose, two essays, work history, two recommendation letters, and transcripts. Those in the final admission stage complete an in-person interview.
Candidates can pursue a 22-month EMBA at Boston University. The program includes modules like understanding the business environment, collaboration, and law and ethics. Students also complete two residence weeks and an international seminar trip to locations such as Santiago, Chile, or New Delhi, India. During this seminar trip, students examine a region's regulatory and cultural issues, conduct research on its industries, and visit local for- and non-profit organizations. Candidates must submit an online application with a $125 fee, two essays, a resume, an employer letter of support, transcripts, and two recommendation letters.
Suffolk University awards an EMBA that offers Saturday classes. The program consists of coursework, four residential seminars - one of which is a week-long international seminar - and a capstone. The four-month capstone project is the culmination of students' professional interests and program coursework. The admissions process includes an online application with a $50 fee, official transcripts, a statement of interest, a resume, and one recommendation letter.
Hult International Business School
Prospective students can enroll in one of Hult International Business School's EMBA programs: the Global EMBA or the Metropolitan EMBA. Both are part-time, 18- to 24-month programs. The difference is the scheduling: the Global program has classes once a month over a four-day weekend, whereas the Metropolitan program has classes two weekends per month. Students enrolled in the Global EMBA program typically take one program course at a Hult location outside of their country of residence. Program curriculum includes classes in financial accounting, international marketing, and business and global societies. Applicants will need at least a bachelor's degree and three years of relevant work experience. They must also complete an online application with a $150 fee and submit supplemental documents like a resume, personal statement, reference, and transcripts.
EMBA candidates must have relevant work experience before applying to such a program. They can choose from programs that offer part-time enrollment or weekend classes.
