For about a dozen years, the Zarb School has offered an Executive MBA (EMBA) program. Among the more than 125 graduates of the program are many business and community leaders. Is this program right for YOU? If yes, contact program director Dr. Barry Berman at barry.berman@hofstra.edu or 516-463-5711.

The EMBA program is designed for managers and professionals with at least seven years of managerial experience who want to accelerate their careers while continuing to work full time. The EMBA program integrates academic research, strategic analysis. and the latest management principles into a global perspective.

The 20-month EMBA schedule comprises seven consecutive semesters. The first 12 months of the programs (four semesters) combine an overview of the various business functions in the context of decision making and management. The final eight months of the program (three semesters) adopt a more interdisciplinary perspective  and intense international business study. The International Management Practicum is conducted at the beginning of this eight month time frame.
