About the Program
To position you for even greater success, we structured an effective and efficient cohort-based program that brings together talented professionals of similar experience levels who then proceed through each course at the same pace for the duration of the two-and-a-half-year program.
Representing a wide variety of industries, students bring their current work topics to a place where their collective experiences serve as live case studies for their colleagues to discuss and dissect.
The curriculum focuses on contemporary issues critical for senior managers and executives. The program builds content around integrating themes within and across course modules. It is primarily delivered over ten, 10-week modules during which students take two courses per module. The 10-week modules are progressive and have the theme of strategic management across three main concepts: the process of value creation, implementation and stakeholder analysis, and personal effectiveness.
Executive Programs Academic Director Lists the Top 5 Value-adds to the Program
Prospective Executive MBA students have already experienced great success in their career—but business is always changing, and continuous learning and a global perspective is essential to developing strategic management competencies that will help leaders realize their professional goals in a challenging, complex, and competitive marketplace.
Students in Loyola's Executive MBA program work closely with Academic Director Gloria Phillips-Wren, Ph.D., professor and chair of information systems and operations management. As a '98 graduate of Loyola’s MBA Fellows program who worked as a civilian engineer with the Army prior to her MBA, Wren understands the needs of our Executive students in a very personal way. In addition to her management experience, Wren brings her research expertise in decision-making to the role.
We recently caught up with Wren who lists the top five value-adds in the Executive MBA program that will help continue your growth as an engaged, effective, and responsible business leader. Read the full story.
