Academic Calendar

The Executive MBA Program launches a cohort annually in September.

‌When you begin the program, you will know exactly what days you are expected to attend class and participate in cohort residencies. The schedule has proven to be compatible with the busy lives of executives.

Regular monthly classes are held on the university's Minneapolis campus. Typically you will be in class once a month on a Friday-Saturday combination from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

In between class weekends, you can expect 15-20 hours per week of class preparation through a combination of online activities including – but not limited to – conferencing and simulations, discussion boards and group collaboration. Activities will vary by course.

The international residency embedded in the Global Systems course is held overseas in a country that will add richness to the cohort's understanding of business decisions in view of diverse cultural, societal, economic and political relationships.
