Building the global classroom, exclusive to Online EMBA students


Goizueta joins a number of business schools globally taking their Executive MBA programs online in response to demand for more flexible study options.

According to a recent survey by the Executive MBA Council (EMBAC), over 88% of schools offer some form of distance learning compared with 74% in 2020 and just 55% in 2019.

Italy’s MIP Politecnico di Milano, for example, developed its International Flex EMBA in partnership with Microsoft. The 20-month program offers the same learnings and experiences as the traditional Full-time Executive MBA in a more flexible format.

At the same time, applications to EMBA programs are increasing with the average number of applications received per program up by 17% in 2021, according to EMBAC.

Pleasant weather, campus and professors

Emory enjoys pleasant weather for the most part, with warmth and mild conditions. The only drawback is the spring season, particularly due to the heavy pollen presence. Everything becomes coated in layers of pollen, which can be problematic for allergy sufferers. Fortunately, this pollen season is relatively short-lived. During the spring and fall, the weather can be quite unpredictable, swinging from scorching heat to chilly temperatures. You'll often find students relaxing or studying outdoors on campus with Professors ever ready to attend to students personally.
