Study for an MBA in Alabama

Auburn University College of Business Alabama United States

 

Auburn University's College of Business offers an Executive MBA Program (EMBA), a Physicians Executive MBA Program (PEMBA) and a Custom Executive MBA Program for corporations, all of which are AACSB accredited, launch each Fall and run 21 months.



The Executive MBA Program is aimed at mid and upper level professionals and is designed to optimize a working professional's most valuable resource - time. Auburn's program design, anchored with its five on-campus residencies and international trip, affords the executive both the real time interaction with faculty and fellow executives, and the flexibility of a self-paced distance program. Specialized concentrations are also offered in Technology Management and HealthCare.

The Auburn EMBA encompasses the foundations of a business education and places them in an international context. After analyzing global issues through reading, case studies and lectures, Auburn Executive Students travel as a class to study business and management practices beyond the United States. There is no substitute for first hand international experience. It broadens the students' horizons, equips them with the tools to excel in the global marketplace, and distinguishes them in the crowded world of MBA graduates. Business leaders learn the technical, analytical and creative skills necessary to excel in the world of 21st century business.

Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and represent such outstanding organizations as Booz Allen Hamilton, Cisco Systems, Chick-fil-A, GlaxoSmithKline, Hyundai Motors, IBM, Milliken, Nokia, Raytheon, Siemens, U. S. Coast Guard, U. S. Navy, and many others.

Applicants to the EMBA program are required to have a 4 year undergraduate degree and at least 8 years of progressively responsible work experience. A structured interview can be substituted for the GMAT entrance exam.

For physicians only, the Physicians Executive MBA Program affords physicians the opportunity to earn a fully accredited MBA degree with minimal interference on their professional demands. Five short (Wednesday or Thursday through Sunday noon) on-campus residencies, international study and innovative distance learning technologies create an intensive, but flexible learning environment designed to provide doctors with the business and organizational tools to gain more control over their own practice or to assume executive positions in healthcare or related industries.

The PEMBA program includes two study trips to enrich students' perspectives on the future alternatives and possibilities for healthcare delivery and practice. First, the class spends a week in London or Paris getting in-depth exposure to a healthcare system different from that operating in the US. Toward the end of the program, the class also spends a week in Washington, DC interacting with US policy makers to learn and debate the future of US national healthcare.

Applicants to the PEMBA program must have a medical degree from an accredited American university or medical college or certified equivalent. Entrance exams such as the GMAT or GRE are not required.

The residencies and distance components of the EMBA and PEMBA programs are similar. Students visit Auburn's campus five times during the 21 month program. During these short residencies, the bulk of one course is delivered in a face-to-face, classroom/workshop setting. The distance component is delivered on interactive DVD. Each DVD contains a full-motion video lecture, as well as supplementary print, photo and slide materials, test and review questions and internet links. Underpinning this electronic delivery is EMBANET, a tried and tested on-line learning platform. Each class has a unique conference site. Through EMBANET, students can work with team members on group assignments, ask questions and hold discussions with their professors and classmates, submit homework, download course materials and stay in touch with the program.

Auburn's Executive MBA Program office also works with senior executives and their Human Resource organization to develop Custom Executive MBA programs for the company's employees. The curriculum is modeled after the EMBA program with electives chosen by the company and class projects applied to company issues. An international trip may or may not be included at the company's option. Delivery of the course materials varies slightly from the other two programs in that there is no distance component, students take one class at a time and meet one weekend a month on-site at the company's facility with Auburn's faculty. Over the course of the program, students will spend three weekends on the Auburn campus. The custom program also takes advantage of EMBANET to keep students connected with each other, the faculty and program staff.

Applicants to the Custom EMBA program are required to have a 4 year undergraduate degree. Work experience requirements may vary at the employer's discretion and applicants must have company sponsorship. An interview is required; however entrance exams such as the GMAT are not.

Customer service is at the core of the Executive programs. Our programs work because we focus on the student. The Executive MBA program coordinators register the students for classes, purchase the textbooks and course materials, make the hotel reservations, cater the meals and generally act as an interface between the students and the university. Students can concentrate on the coursework and let us take care of the rest.

Auburn University is a special place, with special people, and special programs.
