Business Administration–Online Executive MBA


Course Description

See the department website - http://executivembaonline.rit.edu/

The online executive MBA is a challenging and demanding program designed to accelerate the careers of mature, high-performance professionals with significant business experience, unlike traditional MBA programs which are geared primarily toward a less experienced audience. The online program, delivered via distance learning, covers the same rigorous curriculum as the on campus EMBA.

The program is ideal for creative, innovative individuals who have gained experience in the workforce. Participants have established careers and are looking for proven and effective methods and strategies to propel them further up the career ladder. Students master executive skills such as strategic and cross–functional thinking and leadership. They learn from knowledgeable and professional instructors and from the successful, motivated, diverse peer group enrolled in the program.

The program encourages students to think outside the box and places a strong emphasis on group networking. Students leave the program with a solid network of influential peers.

This is a 17-month program with all courses completed online. Students can begin the program in the fall or spring semester. The course sequence presented is based on a student who begins their studies in the fall semester.

Qian Yang

Qian Yang of China is a graduate of RIT's Print Media MS program - a program that teaches business, technology, and processes in graphic communications.

Qian writes the following about her experience in the program and at RIT:

“I was admitted to a bunch of graduate programs, but I found that RIT's Print Media program was not only a well-designed curriculum, it was also a team of teachers drawn from experts in different industries. They could share incredible resources and experience with students. At RIT, I got to know a lot of talented people who had a lot of good qualities: they were kind, creative and always passionate about their research. The Cary Graphic Arts Center in the library - for those who like graphics communication - is definitely a rare treasure. Two years of graduate student experience gave me an important inspiration and opened the door to an appreciation for printing and graphic arts - and even the beauty of the digital world. Although I have learned professional knowledge from the classroom, RIT gave me the opportunity to learn how to do research and skills. No matter what area I work in the future, this ability to carry out my research will benefit me a lot.”

Sai Ashwin Parakkal

Sai Ashwin Parakkal of India is an MS Computer Science student who will graduate this year. Sai completed a Summer internship with Kodak Alaris in Fall, 2016, and then had an amazing experience working for Amazon’s New York City operation in the Spring & Summer of 2017. He was offered a permanent position with Amazon upon completion of his degree.

Of his decision to attend RIT and his experience here, Sai writes,

"The reasons I chose RIT are three-fold; first would be its strong alumni relations with strong industrial presence, the second was a wide range of on-campus jobs, and finally the wonderful co-op program which is not available in most other universities. With the help of RIT's career fair I landed a summer internship at Kodak Alaris. With that experience under my belt, I then started a co-op job with Amazon in New York City. The work culture there was amazing. I was given problem statement to solve and all of the experience that I had gained was useful in this setup and I was able to end my co-op with an offer from Amazon for full-time employment upon my graduation. RIT provides you with everything you need. There are people to guide you and you can utilize this for your own benefit. The academic strength of RIT, coupled with the many career services offered by RIT, directs you toward success.”
