World Class Faculty Shape the Experience

The reputation of the Michael G. Foster School of Business is built on the credentials and expertise of its exceptional faculty. Since 1983, the Executive MBA faculty members have been instrumental in working with current and next-generation executives and senior leaders to refine their leadership skills and equip them with strategic business-thinking skills.

Recognized for both their academic accomplishments and extensive “real world” and consulting experience, faculty members are selected for their desire and ability to teach highly motivated, experienced professionals.

Foster Executive MBA professors employ a variety of teaching methods that:

  • Bring current business issues into the classroom
  • Offer thought-provoking lectures
  • Encourage discussions
  • Focus on practical solutions as well as theory and strategy

Known for their accessibility, faculty members remain in frequent contact with EMBA students by:

  • Connecting with students one-on-one after class
  • Meeting with Study Teams
  • Joining students on the International Immersion
  • Offering optional Help Sessions on weeknights for classes
  • Teaching assistants are also available in many of the quantitative courses to assist individual students or provide support to study teams but all classes are taught by faculty members.
