The Alberta Executive MBA is designed to develop innovative leaders. Bringing together high quality, motivated students with a world class faculty, the EMBA program builds the skills needed to accelerate your career and expand upon your general management abilities.

About the Program

The Executive MBA program is an intensive, 20 month program. Classes are delivered face-to-face at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. It is designed for senior-level managers who wish to enhance their organization’s value in a climate of increased complexity and uncertainty in competitive environments. Critical thinking skills are essential for making decisions at a senior level.

The Alberta Executive EMBA gives you these skills which will enable you to accelerate your career, whether your goal is a senior executive of a large corporation, to start your own company or to change your career. Not only will you learn these essential skills, you will learn about yourself: your strengths, weaknesses and how you interact with others. People skills are a fundamental aspect impacting your success as a leader. Combine these with key critical thinking and decision making skills to accelerate your growth and development to prepare you for your new career. You will have the opportunity to hear from and study the behaviour of other great leaders who have made a significant impact in business through the Executive Speaker Series.

"The Executive MBA gave me the broader and deeper base of business knowledge I was hoping to gain and the classroom experience allowed me to learn from my professors as well as my diverse and experienced cohort. The program challenged and refined my capabilities and I have taken away a more strategic mindset, a renewed passion for learning, and relationships that reach far beyond the classroom."
