The EMSE program is delivered in a modular format with a combination of traditional face-to-face classes and several different forms of distance learning. Examples of types of distance learning are case or problem assignments that students prepare and submit electronically, and participation in discussion boards.
Each course is taught within the period of about one month. There are four days of classes, all of which are given on Saturdays and Sundays on two successive weekends. The classes are complemented with distance learning before the first Saturday class, between the two weekends, and after the second Sunday class.
The modular format was designed to best meet the needs of busy executives who work full time and want to pursue graduate studies while they continue their careers.
The program is designed to be completed in about one year, during which students take all 10 course modules. Students must complete the program within 6 years.
Students who choose to take longer than one year will incur additional costs, as described in detail in the Tuition and Fees section.
