EMBA Program Timeline

You will complete the LMU EMBA Program in 22 months and receive an AACSB-accredited MBA degree from LMU’s College of Business Administration. The EMBA program is structured as a cohort and offers a modular curriculum in an executive setting. Members of your class begin the program at the same time in August and move through the curriculum together, completing the degree requirements for graduation as a group in May of the second year.


Class is held on Saturdays (excluding holiday weekends), from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There are four modules (fall, spring, fall, spring) and two summer sessions between your first and second year. The program also includes an Executive Leadership Retreat, a first-year domestic trip and a second-year international trip. View the current program calendar.
