, MA,
The Suffolk Executive MBA Program’s Saturday class schedule allows you to hone your leadership skills while working full-time. Since only five percent of MBAs awarded each year are Executive MBAs, you’ll be able to differentiate yourself with this designation from the longest-standing EMBA program in New England.


The Suffolk EMBA is designed for mid-career professionals. This 16-month program relies on a cohort structure that promotes professional development in a team-centric environment. Four residential seminars give you an immersive experience, including a weeklong Travel Seminar on which you’ll work on real-life case studies at major international businesses. Past company visits have included TripAdvisor, IBM, Lloyd’s of London, and State Street Global Advisors.

The EMBA curriculum includes a capstone project, which lets you spend four months tying together your coursework, interests, and career goals. Your education will help you leverage your experience to lead across organizations and borders.
