The Executive MBA provides working professionals with access to advanced training and skills in finance, accounting, leadership, and other domains in the business arena. The program is delivered in a hybrid format in which students complete the program in 6 semesters (each year has 3 semesters), with online work during the semester, and a 3-day campus residency each semester.
The degree is designed to further students’ knowledge of key leadership elements including problem solving, effective communication, motivation of employees, and negotiation. Through the Executive MBA program, students further their career by developing advanced strategic leadership techniques, sound business practices, and a deep understanding of organizational dynamics in management for the emerging global professional.
Hybrid MBA Program
The program follows a 6-semester structure, with mandatory 3-day residencies during each term. Students must attend all residencies to continue enrollment in the program.
In the period before and after the residencies, students will complete their course work online. Instructors will maintain regular ‘virtual’ office hours and will be available to assist students as required throughout the semester.
A Virtual Orientation Session to cover immigration issues, academics, login processes, billing and payments, and an opportunity to meet the faculty and staff of NEC will take place a week before the term starts. Admitted students will receive the link to access the orientation session.
An internship for one credit is a required component of this program. International students can fulfill this requirement through a CPT option, starting the first semester. For students not using CPT, an internship project will be required each semester.
Students must take at least seven credits per semester to be considered full-time.
A total of 40 credit hours are required for program completion: eleven three-credit courses and seven credits of CPT or a Capstone Project.
Due to the hybrid nature of our residency model, online attendance is required each week of the semester. This means that students will not be allowed to register after the official semester start date.
Residency weekend sessions are mandatory. International students must attend each residency session in full, including all classes and meetings in the residency, to receive credit and to fulfill the immigration in-seat class component, to maintain F-1 status. An international student who misses any part of the semester will be counted absent for the entire semester. This will result in SEVIS record termination for international students. No exceptions will be made to this policy.
