The Executive MBA is designed for those with a minimum of 7 years of significant business or military/professional experience. The program's focus is management decision making, strategic management of business resources, and leadership – all in the context of National Security and Government Contracting firms. Dedicated faculty, an innovative and relevant curriculum for the D.C. area, a student-centered program team, and great colleagues contribute to the learning experience of a lifetime. The program is carefully designed to help students master a broad range of executive-level competencies while cultivating expert business-related knowledge of the National Security business environment. Students complete the program as a cohort, resulting in strong bonds and networking opportunities. The program is completed in 16 months, starting in January and classes are held approximately one Saturday and one Friday per month.
Diversity in Learning
Students encounter multiple approaches to learning in the program. Classroom discussions, team projects, individual reading, team presentations, team problem solving, business simulations, business case analyses, coaching, and a D.C. residency all contribute to the creative learning environment delivered by the Mason Executive MBA Program.
National Security Focus
With America's role in the world continually evolving to meet new global challenges, the role of leadership in the security industry has never been more vital. The need for military leaders, government executives and corporate defense contractors who can provide mission critical products and services - and who understand the unique demands of the complex and dynamic national security sector - has never been more critical. Dedicated faculty from the Mason School of Business and adjunct faculty (working faculty working in specialty areas of the security sector) as well as accomplished government, military, and corporate guest speakers, technical experts, and Mason alumni employed in the security industry, are a part of the National Security focus on this program. The dynamic learning environment brings contemporary challenges of the national security industry right into the classroom.
