Teaching Methods and Faculty

Teaching Methods

Teaching methods include lectures, discussions, case analyses, student presentations, group projects, computer simulations, and guest speakers from industry and government. The curriculum and teaching approach have been adapted to the experience levels of seasoned professionals and to the demands of a compressed time schedule.

The Program is intensive and demanding, as would be consistent with a graduate professional program in management. Serious preparation is expected, and academic standards are carefully maintained, to ensure the integrity of the earned degrees.  

Faculty

Classes in the EMBA Program are taught by the senior faculty at the Krannert School of Management. All have taught extensively in executive programs previously, have substantial research and publication records, and have experience as consultants to corporations and government agencies.
