EDP and EMBA target a similar audience, but the primary drivers for these individuals differ. For EDP, an MBA degree is not as important as many of them already have advanced degrees.

Many of the same professors that teach in the EMBA program teach in the Executive Development Program. The material covers similar core topics, but is not as in depth as the EMBA program. The faculty in EDP are asked to focus on the most relevant applications during EDP class sessions.
Participants with focused professions often benefit the most from the program. They “live” in one field of expertise and through EDP can learn about finance, marketing, negotiations, leadership, and strategy – business acumen they can use but may not have any formal training in.
One of the greatest benefits of the Executive Development Program (EDP) is the opportunity to learn from your peers–bright, talented professionals on the fast track to success, seeking to deepen their business acumen and sharpen their managerial skills. A typical class includes talented professionals from engineering, marketing, finance, and human resources fields, each with over a decade of work experience.
EDP participants represent a cross-section of industry today from traditional business to high-tech, large corporations to small family businesses, and/or private industry to government.
