A two-part group project provides a means to integrate new knowledge and apply it to real-world business concerns. All participants work on a comprehensive international business consulting project which serves as a thesis equivalent. Through it, classroom learning is applied firsthand to advancing the business interests of a sponsoring corporation, a State of Nebraska economic development target, or in furthering the goals of a grand marketing organization. As part of the project, all students will conduct field research overseas for 10 to 14 days, normally during August of the program's second year. Overseas travel and research costs are included in the program's tuition and fees.
The University of Nebraska Executive MBA program's aim is to provide the intellectual and applicable tools you'll need to manage a broad array of business functions in an integrated manner that advances your organization's best interests. Reflecting the dynamic and challenging nature of today's business environment, four unifying concepts have been incorporated into much of the Executive MBA course work: the impact of analysis, strategy, leadership and global commerce on business management and decision-making.
An Executive MBA provides the foundational knowledge and skills you will need to perform and compete at the senior management and leadership levels of your organization.
To be successful in today's hyper-competitive business environment, you must distinguish yourself by your performance and potential. Noteworthy performance requires exceptional managements skills, a firm grasp of current and emerging business strategies and a broad perspective and understanding of the global business landscape - core learning objectives of the Executive MBA. Combined with demonstrated performance, your perceived potential unlocks doors to opportunity and advancement.
Potential is enhanced by preparation and sustained by focused, life-long learning. The Executive MBA can be a major component of that paradigm, providing crucial preparation for future responsibilities and a clear demonstration of your potential and commitment to professional growth. The Executive MBA program includes three, 2.0-credit hour elective courses that allow focus on the subject matter you determine will help advance your professional interests and development.
We offer a proven, effective supplement to your business and management experience; one that values your years of professional experience, recognizes the multiple demands on your time, and tailors its curriculum to address the issues that will affect you and your business interest now and in the future.
