Executive MBA Program

The Culverhouse College of Business Executive MBA (EMBA) Program at The University of Alabama realizes that today’s business professionals pursuing an MBA must juggle their education, social and family life, and an ever-growing work schedule.

To aid in this work-school-life balance, the EMBA Program at UA now offers a convenient blended-instruction format for earning your MBA. Students experience an even split between in-class sessions and weekly interactive online classes. With in-class sessions scheduled one weekend a month, you have the opportunity to embrace the academic challenge without affecting your work and personal obligations.

Our alumni call their experience in the UA EMBA Program a valuable, challenging, and life-changing investment in themselves. Within each class, we bring together a group of highly successful managers, professionals, and executives across a broad spectrum of industries and job positions. Our goal is to provide the tools and opportunities to drive more success for our students, alumni, and their companies. We emphasize leadership and improving business skills to further professional and personal aspirations.

Classes are held in a blended format with a combination of online instruction and face-to-face class meetings held one weekend per month on The University of Alabama campus for 17 months (4 semesters). Orientation begins January of 2024 in Tuscaloosa.
