Individualized Career Planning

Your background, professional skill set, and goals make you a unique manager. We value that. That’s why we pair you with a Career Coach who will help you develop an Individual Development Plan, informed by a 360 assessment of your leadership skills. Your coach will work with you on reaching the milestones you set to ensure that you continue to move forward.

Direct Application through Integrated Management Project

A key feature of the Lubar EMBA is the opportunity to work with a team of your classmates on the capstone Integrated Management Project —  an 8-month, real-world, applied project in which you will collaborate and consult on strategic projects with our partner companies and under the guidance of an EMBA faculty member. 

High Level Peer Learning

Imagine being surrounded by a cohort of students who – like you – are at a pivotal point in their careers and are highly motivated to become better managers and leaders. Your executive classmates will share expertise and insights from diverse industries and functional areas, helping make you a more well-rounded and effective manager. Many Lubar EMBA graduates cite the level of peer learning and the long-term professional relationships they develop as key attributes in their Lubar EMBA experience.

International Residency

The EMBA International Residency provides you with the opportunity to explore international management issues through a ten-day study trip that features meetings with management teams of overseas companies and focused seminars related to international management topics. It also includes an introduction to business practices and cultural offerings of the countries on your itinerary. Recent residencies have taken students to Brazil, Vietnam, Kuala Lampur, China, South  Korea and Hong Kong. The international trip is included in your program fees.

Executive MBA Alumni Mentoring Program

We want you to learn outside of the classroom, not just inside of it. Our staff will pair you with a successful EMBA alum mentor who can serve as a sounding board and professional confidante regarding your professional journey.
