The Executive MBA is designed for working professionals that want a peer-learning environment. Our program is cohort-based, lock step and all-inclusive. The EMBA features peer learning, has small class sizes, gets input from major businesses on the curriculum, provides an all-inclusive fee, has an International Business Residency trip, provides world-class service by dedicated in-house program coordinators, and supports a large alumni base for networking. Over twenty-five years of experience in executive education makes the University of Houston EMBA experts in training executives in the real world.

A cohort is a team chosen by a panel at the beginning of the program. Each student in the program is placed in one of the cohorts and continues with that team through the entire program.
The EMBA uses senior faculty members, department chairs, deans, and industry leaders with years of real world experience as instructors.
Participants in Program 1 should expect to spend 10-15 hours a week on studies outside of class. Participants in Program 2 should expect to spend 20-30 hours. This is inclusive of team meetings, homework, readings, etc.
