Integrated disciplines. Leadership practice. A global perspective.

 
Integrated.
 
The SBE EMBA integrates the disciplines of business--just like business works in the real world. You'll move across finance, accounting, economics, marketing, and so on with a perspective that demonstrates their interconnectedness, as opposed to highlights the silos between them.
 
As a leader, you need more than just the book-knowledge of business. That's why the SBE EMBA pivots around a unique leadership model to prepare you to make the tough decisions within a solid business acumen framework.
  
Executive Schedule.
 
You'll study with a tight group of like-minded professionals who bring with them similar experience levels and different perspectives on the challenges faced by leaders. Facilitated by SSU's School of Business and Economics faculty - unique thought leaders who've long bridged academic excellence with business world relevance - the program will challenge you to think broadly about business: how to lead across the disciplines to move an enterprise forward.
