Executive MBA Program Overview
Strategy Defined - Innovation Applied
The MBA at Centenary College is designed for the rising leader, with at least five years of professional work experience, who has daily responsibility for the management of people, projects, products, data or budgets within his or her organization. Our courses are taught from a senior management perspective with an emphasis on the business skills and knowledge that enable a shift from functional expertise to broad based leadership and strategic thinking. If your goal is to develop both the competence and self-confidence to advance your business insight and leadership responsibilities, take a close look at the Frost School of Business Executive MBA program at Centenary College.
Established in 1984, The Frost School of Business Executive MBA program is a 45 credit hour degree, consisting of 14 courses and an integrative final project. Centenary's Executive program grants an MBA equivalent to a full-time traditional MBA, yet it is tailored to meet the needs of today's executives and professionals. In contrast to the traditional MBA, our MBA for executives taps into the management and operating experience of its participants and then builds on that experience in the classroom. The applied orientation of our program facilitates immediate transfer of classroom learning back to the workplace, while preparing our MBA candidates for the challenges each will face in the future.
The professional diversity among our students––physicians, attorneys, business owners, bankers, engineers, account executives, and corporate managers––creates a classroom atmosphere that encourages new approaches and ways of thinking, develops fresh insight, and broadens perspective. Our MBA faculty are selected not only on the basis of their cutting-edge expertise, but also for their ability to stimulate the exchange of ideas and the sharing of "best practices" among program participants.
Enrollment is limited, assuring a personalized education, and maximum interaction among participants and our faculty. Small class sizes facilitate your learning in an interactive and collaborative environment. The program is conveniently structured so that those accepted can balance the demands of their jobs and families with those of a comprehensive MBA program. Five 10-week terms per year enable students to complete their degree requirements in as few as 18 months or at a reduced pace as personal and professional needs arise. Neither an undergraduate degree in business nor any prerequisite business classes are required.
