Ready to Make Yourself a More Valuable Player?
The Vanderbilt Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) is a 21-month program designed for working professionals already in or aspiring to executive leadership roles. You might be asking, “Is it time for an EMBA?” The Executive MBA benefits and career impact will be immediate, giving you an ROI that more than offsets the cost of tuition as you focus on leadership and become part of a supportive alumni network that stays with you for life.
In the first year, our program meets on alternating Saturdays, allowing you to maintain and enhance your career momentum while managing your personal commitments. In your second year, you can choose between two tracks—the Executive Edge Track that focuses on strategic skills and advanced financial acumen to drive your career enhancement—or the Global Immersion Track, in which you’ll become part of an international cohort and prepare to take on cross-border assignments in your next leadership role. Compare tracks.
Vanderbilt consistently places high in EMBA rankings, offering access to top EMBA program faculty with an immersive team experience woven into the curriculum, career management and classes tailored to an executive schedule. Read more in The Vanderbilt Advantage.

that an MBA could give her the “translational knowledge” she needed to lead
educational initiatives within her organization and better understand the
strategic organizational behavior and human resources issues that connect to
Principal, Crenshaw & Associates Consulting Group
Reggie Crenshaw chose the Global Immersion Track for several reasons. First, he believed that a deeper understanding of international business would help him better serve the clients of his consulting practice. Second, he reasoned it would be easier on his wife and family (he had a two-year-old boy at home) for him to be gone four times for a long week than for him to commute from Memphis to Nashville every other weekend.
