MBA for Executives

The Yale School of Management's exclusive Executive MBA program.

This 22-month program is designed for working professionals, combining the rigor of the Yale MBA integrated core curriculum and leadership development program with advanced study in a chosen area at the nexus of business and society: healthcare, asset management or sustainability.

The sustainability track of the EMBA focuses on relevant imperatives facing modern organizations: sky- high commodity prices, resource scarcity, and growing public scrutiny of business operations throughout the entire value chain, to name a few. The program draws on faculty with deep professional and academic experience across various sectors, and within federal regulatory bodies. At the heart of the EMBA is a radical reconception of sustainability not as a question of corporate responsibility, but as an opportunity for competitive advantage and corporate success.
