The Executive MBA program from Pace University begins with a seven-day orientation residency during which students become familiar with its problem-oriented educational approach and learn to use its electronic instructional platform, Blackboard. This learning management system is designed to support and facilitate collaboration via the Internet. The orientation residency also helps students to learn to acquire information from many sources, including the Internet and Pace's extensive library holdings, many of which can be accessed electronically.


All residency sessions, including the orientation residency, are held at Pace's Downtown Conference Center, 157 William Street, in lower Manhattan. The Center is equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment in its tiered main room that allows faculty to illustrate their presentations with spreadsheets, PowerPoint, and other visual content. All rooms in the Center provide both wireless and wired connectivity to the Internet, allowing students direct access to a wide variety of documents and business data during interactive plenary and team sessions. Students work in teams throughout the orientation to complete a sample mini project. In a recent orientation, students analyzed a potential merger of Microsoft and Accenture. Throughout the Executive MBA program from Pace University, students communicate with each other and with faculty using Blackboard. Through this medium, students can work asynchronously in teams toward project completion while becoming proficient, collaborative problem solvers. Faculty continually track team progress and intervene, as needed, to provide information, ask questions, or make suggestions. Students acquire information for their projects from many sources, including the vast array of data available on the Internet. Their individual development occurs not only through project work, but also as a result of completing Individual Learning Exercises and participating in concept-based discussions offered by the faculty. When individual students have difficulty understanding a concept or analytical issue, they can quickly obtain support from faculty or other students.
