Excellence in International Immersion
In addition to pursuing excellence through coursework, all EMBA students participate in an international immersion experience. This overseas residency allows you to apply a range of analytical models to solve the typical problems faced by multinational firms. You will also gain first-hand knowledge of the influence local customs, economics, and politics have on day-to-day management functions and business decisions.
Distinction through Capstone Consulting
Another distinct feature of RIT’s EMBA is the capstone consulting program, where students serve as consultants to actual businesses. Using your newly developed skills and your own professional experience, you will have the opportunity to assess, analyze, and make recommendations that have a direct impact on a real business. This experience not only tests your ability in the real world, but becomes an excellent addition to your résumé.
Engaging Education in a Virtual World
Beyond simply allowing you the convenience of studying in your own home, online course delivery gives you a leg up in learning to manage communication via technology, mimicking the realities of doing business in the global marketplace. Using cutting-edge business simulations, innovative uses of multimedia programs, and advanced instructional design, the engaging EMBA program allows you to graduate with hands-on experience using advanced technology.
