The Executive MBA (EMBA) program at Loyola University Maryland’s Sellinger School of Business and Management will adopt a new format beginning in fall 2011. While the program currently meets on alternating Fridays and Saturdays, the new format will have students attending all-day class sessions on Fridays and Saturdays on alternating weekends.
Sellinger School leaders expect the change in format to increase the program’s geographic reach and allow more flexibility for students and faculty. While current EMBA students agreed with the change, the new schedule will not affect those already enrolled in the program or the MBA Fellows Program that meets only on Saturdays in half-day sessions.
“We are always examining our market and looking for ways to better understand and meet the needs and expectations of our current and potential students,” said Karyl B. Leggio, Ph.D., dean of the Sellinger School. “This new format, which better accommodates family activities, travel planning, and other scheduling needs, allows us to expand our program's geographic reach and better serve our prospective students.”
Loyola’s Executive MBA program is a 21-month cohort program designed for skilled, seasoned professionals who have already achieved significant success in their careers.
