Program Schedule

17 Months from Start to Finish

The Executive MBA Americas program is an important undertaking that will require a significant investment of time. That's why we have developed a 17-month schedule that is designed to allow you to pursue your degree while continuing to meet your personal and professional responsibilities.

Regular class sessions are held all day Saturday and Sunday mornings every other weekend, creating minimal disruption to the work week. This schedule should be used as a guide only and once enrolled in the program, the class schedule will be finalized and shared in advance so that you can plan your personal and course work time.

Balanced Workload

The program typically requires you to carry two to three courses at a time, which balances the workload over the duration of the program. Exams, projects, and assignments are divided evenly throughout so that you can develop a regular work pattern. The schedule also allows for some free time periodically over the course of the program.

Note: this is not the official schedule and should be used as a guide only. All dates are subject to change.

The class will be divided into 2 sections throughout the program, each with a slightly different schedule. Your section number may change throughout the program. Please contact your Program Manager for more information.
