How do we make this manageable?

Study at your own pace

We understand very well that pursuing an Executive MBA is not always 100% compatible with the demands and needs of your personal and professional life. Our program is designed for professionals, combining a busy life and career with a challenging program. The standard duration for completion of the EMBA is 22 months (equivalent to 2 academic years), 55 mandatory in-class days of which 38 are working days. If necessary, we offer you the option to study at your own pace.

In some cases this may not be convenient or appropriate for the lifestyle or professional responsibilities of individual participants. AMS therefore encourages you to get in touch with us to discuss how the schedule may be redeveloped to ensure that you can complete the program in a logical sequence of activities but in harmony with the external demands on your time. In the past years, participants have completed the EMBA in 2, 3 or more years. Contact us for more details.

The learning process workflow

The small class size

On average our EMBA class is composed of 30 – 35 participants per location. These smaller class sizes allow each participant to receive individual support and have easier access to our faculty. The high-level of interaction in class creates life-long friendships in a supportive atmosphere.

Networking opportunities are created through the frequent connections between class groups of different years and different locations, creating a network of 150 – 200 participants. Each year, Alumni events offer various network events after graduating from the program.

We strive for quality & diversity always

All participants wishing to graduate with the degree of Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) must satisfactorily demonstrate sufficient competences in the mandatory modules, in addition to submitting satisfactory Master Consulting Project reports and Community Project reports.

All teaching materials, discussions and assignments are entirely in English.

‘‘The design of the program, the interaction with faculty and with colleague students gives a boost in self-consciousness and self confidence. After every lesson you go home rejuvenated, reflecting in a different way about all aspects of your own business.”

— Marc S.
