From George Chacko, Faculty Director
"Business leaders told us they need men and women who not only have the tools for rigorous analysis, but who can develop and lead teams around the world. We met this charge with a newly enhanced Executive MBA curriculum, taught by SCU professors, whose remarkable academic achievements are accompanied by extensive industry experience in the fast-paced environment of Silicon Valley and beyond."
Beginning in August, classes meet Friday afternoons and all-day Saturday, every other week. The program begins and ends with intensive off-site residential weekends that are devoted to examining leadership. Bridging these weekends are four academic terms lasting about three months each. Each term has a major team project and additional individual and casework assignments.
