Executive MBA Program

Purdue's IMM Class of 2015

Purdue's executive education programs have provided opportunities for working professionals for more than 35 years through the Executive MBA. 

You can complete your EMBA while remaining employed full-time and attend classes on campus just one to two weeks per quarter. It’s a format that gives you the best of both worlds – online convenience and the power of enhanced classroom learning and networking with other professionals from across the U.S. and world. All this in only 19 months.

  • Cohort-Based Learning
    Purdue Executive MBA students have at least five years' work experience and an average of 14-16 years. They are professionals facing challenges similar to your own and representing a range of industries. They come from across the United States and around the world. This range of experience allows you to learn not only from world-class faculty, but from your peers as well. 
  • Flexible Schedule 
    The program begins with a five-day launch week on Purdue's campus in West Lafayette, Indiana, followed by quarterly on-campus residencies spanning 19 months. Between on-campus residencies, students use online technology to prepare assignments, engage in discussions, work in teams, read ebooks, and watch instructor-prepared videos. The mix of online and on-campus learning allows you to participate from anywhere in the world without interruption to your career and home life.
  • On-Campus Residencies
    The one- to two-week quarterly residencies provide you with an extended opportunity to truly interact and work with the professionals in the program in a way not possible through evening or weekend MBA formats. Through class discussions, evening projects, social events, and company visits, your cohort members become your friends for life. You will graduate with a network spanning different continents, and lifelong friendships.
