Executive MBA

Note to prospective students: You may be questioning whether the time is right to pursue a degree. We are working with each student, and their unique situations, to help them succeed. As you may know, Ohio State has transitioned to virtual learning options due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Our programs have successfully moved our sessions online and will continue to do so as needed for our students, staff and faculty. Due to the increased interest in our hybrid option, we are now extending our application deadline to November 20, 2020. 

 

 

We take you beyond the fundamentals.

Fisher's nationally ranked Executive MBA program is for professionals seeking to grow as well-rounded principled leaders equipped with a versatile skill set to make high-level strategic decisions. We've evolved our program to consist of three integrated components: academic curriculum, experiential learning and executive coaching. These elements provide a comprehensive and wholistic experience, all while providing minimal disruption to your busy life.

Within the three components, we have five main areas of focus. These areas guide the program and bring the three individual components together seamlessly. 

Our Areas of Focus

  • Establishing a Leadership Legacy

    Starting from day one, our integrated leadership curriculum develops principled leaders who are trained to make lasting impacts on their organizations. Our approach is both individual and team-based and creates authentic leaders through lectures and storytelling, but also through a leadership experience — one that is transformative, research-based, intellectually rigorous and facilitated by our faculty with proven success.

  • Fostering an Entrepreneurial Spirit

    Through class sessions and our two experiential immersions, students are exposed first-hand to industry leaders to explore how to raise capital, disrupt an industry and incorporate best practices within various sectors.

  • Magnifying a Global Perspective

    Our curriculum incorporates a global perspective that forms an integrative thread throughout the program. It recognizes that successful decision-making may often depend on understanding the current global business environment. 

  • Driving Decisions with Data

    Analytics is more than a toolset; it is a mindset. As part of the EMBA program, you will learn how to see, think and work with data to sharpen your decision-making and reveal growth opportunities. 

  • Creating and Sustaining Change

    While data and analytics have the potential to inform sound decision-making and reveal new opportunities, that power is diminished if it collides with established ideas and mindsets. The principles of change management taught as part of the EMBA curriculum can be applied to open eyes and minds to the new learning that analytics can provide.
