EMBA & GEMBA New Harmony

New Harmony, Indiana, Week-In-Residence

You will begin your Executive MBA and Global Executive MBA-Americas experience with a one-week residency in New Harmony, Indiana. Intentionally removed from the everyday demands of personal and professional life, this historic community provides the perfect backdrop for full immersion in the program from the outset.

The Executive MBA week-in-residence is a wonderful jumping-off point for the two-year journey at Vanderbilt. Through this full-immersion experience, we became acclimated with the program, bonded with our C-Teams, remembered how to be students and even perfected our karaoke skills.

The first week of the program eases the transition to the alternating Saturday class format of the program. During this week, you will get to know your classmates and faculty, learn more about the objectives of the program and reacquaint yourself with being a student.

This time also accounts for a substantial portion of the first semester's curriculum. During the week, C-Teams are introduced and begin working on the challenges of group assignments. Additionally, key classes—Executive Leadership, Managerial Accounting, Statistics and Managerial Economics—are launched. During this week, you will also be introduced to the Leadership Development Program, meet your team of executive coaches and begin developing a framework for improving your leadership style.
