Admissions and Fees

In the Executive Development Program, you can build knowledge and develop leadership skills without needing to fulfill typical graduate degree requirements. The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is not required to apply. A college degree is also not required – work performance, scope of responsibility and leadership potential are more important considerations in the application process.

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2018-2019 session. Please check back at a later date to apply for the 2019-2020 session.
 

Is the Executive Development Program right for you?

The Executive Development Program is ideal for mid-to-senior level professionals with at least ten years of professional experience or increasing levels of responsibility throughout their career, whether in managing larger teams or taking on more complex projects. Those who benefit most from the program usually have experience with large-scale projects and enterprise-wide scope.
