“The right EMBA had to offer more than book learning; it had to provide real world collaborative experiences that could be applied right away. It also had to offer a convenient schedule, a robust opportunity to network and a China trip that was truly business oriented, not a sightseeing excursion.

After a review of both Dallas and Fort Worth based programs, there was one clear winner that offered a global perspective with real-world applications: UT Arlington’s Executive MBA.”

The Cohort Experience

The Executive MBA program enables students to take their leadership skills to new heights.  The curriculum focuses on strategy, decision-making, and the relationships between key functional business areas.  UTA Executive MBA participants learn cutting-edge, high-level business models, concepts, and procedures they can begin applying immediately. This knowledge is enhanced through team-based deliverables and collaborative projects with fellow classmates.  
The UTA Executive MBA program is designed around an intimate cohort model.  As a participant in the program you will work, study, and learn as a member of a collaborative cohort of successful experienced professionals who are driving growth and change within their organizations and industries.
This is the cornerstone of the program with each member of the cohort contributing their own unique skills and experience to the discussion.  In doing so they learn through exposure to perspectives and insights from a broad variety of industries and functional specialties and contribute their experience to the learning or others. Learning in a cohort magnifies the knowledge and skills of the individual into a powerful community of learners.

The Value of an Executive MBA

Investing in yourself with an Executive MBA pays off in ways that you can’t measure — and also in ways that you can. In addition to gaining business knowledge, students broaden their perspectives, build their networks, and join alumni communities. Of course, committing the time and money to an Executive MBA program is a big decision.

UTA Executive MBA students who are not sponsored by their employer pay approximately $75,900 for 17-months. This includes tuition, student fees, course materials, access to one-on-one leadership coaches, meals on class weekends, and housing and ground transportation for the required Global Business Trip.

Global Immersion Trip

We live in a global economy and your future success will be influenced by your ability to navigate the international business environment.

UTA’s Executive MBA students will experience and study global business directly.  The global immersion experience, is an unmatched, one-of-a-kind opportunity to intimately understand and explore the nuances of international business.
