Our Executive MBA Programs

Ranked 30th

Executive Education at Purdue has provided educational solutions for working professionals for more than 25 years through two key degree programs: the Executive MBA and the IMM Global Executive MBA. Our programs use top Krannert faculty and renowned speakers, and are consistently ranked among the top programs in the world.

You can complete your EMBA degree while remaining employed full-time, and attend in-person classes just one to two weeks per quarter. It’s a format that gives you the best of both worlds – online convenience and the power of enhanced learning and networking with other professionals from across the U.S. and world.

We invite you to learn about five factors that make Purdue’s programs unique:

  • Cohort
    When you are part of the Purdue Executive MBA programs, you interact with managers facing challenges similar to your own. Colleagues have at least six years of work experience and an average of 13 years. They come from 8 to 10 countries around the world representing many different industries and functional areas. You start the program with a cohort of managers and continue working with them until graduation and beyond.
  • Global View - Local Immersion
    Our IMM Global Executive MBA program gives you an opportunity to travel with your cohort to six countries on four continents. The program lets you experience how business takes place, integrated with classroom instruction and cultural experiences.  Our multi-faceted approach gives managers the insights to deal with an increasingly global business environment.
  • Flexible Schedule for Working Executives
    The Purdue EMBA is divided into a five-day launch week in the U.S. plus five two-week residencies spanning only 19 months. Between modules, students use online technology to prepare assignments, engage in discussions, work in teams, read e-books, and watch instructor-prepared videos. The mix of online and on-campus learning allows you to strike a balance between personal and professional demands. You can work from anywhere in the world without interruption to your career and home life.
  • Holistic Learning Approach
    The programs focus on analytical techniques that are immediately applicable to the participant's work setting. Case studies and on-the-job managerial situations are key components. Learning and team work is continued off-campus through synchronized and unsynchronized Internet technology between students and faculty.
  • The People
    Our top faculty brings insights from many years as instructors and from their work with companies from around the world. Your classmates also come from around the world and bring unparalleled networking opportunities.
