EMBA Program Experience at Mason 

5 Reasons to Choose the Mason EMBA Program

Our Executive MBA emphasizes leadership and the role of the general manager. Select from a broad range of courses that help you improve your management skills, increase your contribution to business performance, and develop the talents required for leading others.

1. High-Caliber Peers and Deep Business Connections

Our students are a realistic reflection of the workplace. Two things you have in common with them: You both want to be the very best in your respective fields and are looking to take an active role in shaping your future.

One of the best aspects of the Mason EMBA program is the opportunity to learn from other business professionals—and forge friendships that will last a lifetime. Throughout the program, you take all classes within your cohort consisting of up to 30 colleagues. You immediately form a network of business professionals you can rely on for help within the classroom and in a professional capacity upon graduating.
