The MBA program for Experienced Professionals (EMBA) is the flagship management program at Stevens for experienced professionals, providing a combination of business and technology management skills that prepares you for leadership in the rapidly evolving technology sector. The program has many unique advantages that distinguish it from other programs of this type.
Students in the EMBA program start with the courses that comprise the prestigious Master of Science in Technology Management program for Experienced Professionals (MSTM), and then continue on to the MBA degree in the 4-course extension program that further strengthens competency in the business and management disciplines.
Note: The extension program is also open to EMTM graduates.
The EMBA program is designed for experienced professionals having more than five(5) years of full-time work experience who wish to move to a broader role in technology and business management. Leveraging Stevens’ strong reputation in engineering, science and management, the program provides you with the skills, knowledge and leadership capability to manage both business AND technology effectively enabling you to:
- Leverage technology and know-how to achieve competitive advantage
- Understand and exploit rapidly changing technology
- Utilize technology to provide business solutions to business problems
- Position technology effectively to enhance core business
- Lead within and across organizations
The nationally recognized, award winning program combines courses in technology and business management in a career-enhancing, integrated educational experience. The curriculum delivers a unique combination of academic knowledge and hands on application enabling you to immediately implement classroom principles in the work place.
The EMBA curriculum consists of the same courses that comprise the MSTM program, but includes an additional four courses designed to further broaden and strengthen competence in functional business and technology management. Students normally enroll first in the MSTM program, followed by the four-course extension program leading to the MBA degree.
Designed for Working Professionals
As a working professional, we know you want to enhance your skills without disrupting your career. That is why the instructor-led, EMBA program takes place at the weekends on alternate Saturdays. Classes are held in the Babbio Center for Technology Management on the Stevens Campus in Hoboken. This option means no disruption of your weekday work schedule while leaving time for personal commitments on alternate weekends.
Collaborative learning and lifelong connections
In addition to the coursework, students learn from the collective knowledge of fellow students who represent a range of organizations and job functions and whose average work experience typically varies between 10 - 12 years. The team-oriented environment provides intellectual stimulation and mutual support. The connections you will make in the classroom, and as part of the alumni community will result in a strong professional network after graduation.
Balancing job, school and family can be daunting. To support your success in the program, we provide you with dedicated administrative support and specialized services so you can focus totally on learning.
