The Best Boston Metro Executive MBA Programs
When it comes to the MBA degree and Boston, Harvard Business School hogs a lot of the attention. But Harvard isn’t the only game in town. In fact, when it comes to the executive MBA degree, Harvard isn’t even in the game, never having offerred an EMBA program.
Instead, Boston area managers and executives have nearly a dozen solid degree-granting programs from which to choose. Among them are programs that blend online learning with classroom instruction, feature week-long residencies and international study excursions, boast classes taught by multiple professors from different disciplines, and throw challenging capstone projects at teams of students. Some of these programs start in January of every year; others in March, September, and October.
MIT Sloan, one of the world’s best universities, enrolled its very first class of EMBA candidates in October of 2010. The inaugural group of some 70 students meet just about every three weeks for 26 Friday-Saturday sessions as well as four eight-day, on-campus learning modules. Students will also participate in a week-long action learning course – Global Organizations Lab (GO-Lab) – during which students work on a team-based consulting project with an international company.
