Program timeline

The four-term program is completed over a 20-month period (owing to breaks between semesters, actual classroom time occurs in only 15 of those months). An international study trip takes place in May, at the end of the second term.

Classes are held one day per week, on alternate Fridays and Saturdays, thereby minimizing time spent away from the workplace and away from home. This enables students to be introduced to an idea or practice in class on a Friday or Saturday, begin applying it on Monday and then share their experience with their classmates a few short days later. 

Your cohort, your team

Our students undertake their EMBA studies as part of a cohort – a group which progresses through the program together. The resulting team dynamic not only helps students develop their interpersonal skills and group decision-making abilities, but also creates a network of international, high-achieving professionals that extends far beyond graduation.

Class days

Start with breakfast in the EMBA dining room at 7:15 a.m. and then head to class at 8 o'clock. Meals and refreshments are provided – menus are monitored by PERFORM Centre dieticians to ensure the availability of healthy offerings. Class days end at 5:30 p.m.
