U of M EMBA Program Updates Will Accommodate Students While Enhancing Their Education

For release: January 12, 2011
For press information, contact Curt Guenther, 901/678-2843

The Executive MBA program at the Fogelman College of Business at the University of Memphis will undergo several changes beginning with the fall 2011 semester. Among them will be the adoption of a concentrated curriculum that will offer students the ability to obtain an executive-level master of business education degree in a condensed amount of time. Together with the Tennessee Board of Regents, the faculty and staff of Fogelman College of Business and Economics have created and approved a new 17-month accelerated program that dovetails premium accredited executive education with an optimal work- and life-accommodating schedule.

Other enhancements of the new Executive MBA program include:

  • Reduction in credit hours required to complete the program from 45 to 41 total credits. This change incorporates an updated and enhanced curriculum that meets the current and future demands of a dynamic business environment.
  • Reduction in length of program from 21 months to 17 months. This allows students entering the fall class to complete their degree the following fall.
  • Removal of Friday courses, with the substitution of alternate Thursday evening courses. This change provides students the flexibility to attend classes without affecting their regular work schedule.

As part of the only EMBA program in this area that is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), students will continue to gain the knowledge and experiences afforded to only the most talented, skillful, and ambitious leaders. The curriculum is intense, impactful and innovative and follows an interactive classroom approach. It also includes international study tours and concentrated residencies.

More information about the EMBA program and the recent changes is available online at or by phone or email from Mary Ann Dawson, EMBA program director, at 901-678-5280 or
