Balance Work, Life, and Academics Successfully

The Stern Executive MBA Program in Washington, DC is designed to meet the needs of busy professionals. The program begins in August and takes 24 months to complete. 

Academic Calendars

Students attend classes once a month on a consecutive Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and participate in a total of three required residencies that expand their learnings outside the classroom and build a more global perspective. Year 1 begins with a one-week domestic residency. Several months later, students embark on a one-week Global Immersion Experience. Year 2 begins with a 9-day domestic residency comprised of two consecutive weekends and a week in between.

The first year academic calendar for the upcoming August start term is included below.

A Typical Class Day

A typical class day in the Executive MBA Program begins with breakfast on campus with your classmates. Students go on to attend two courses during the day. A lunch break provides a great opportunity for students to connect with their classmates on a more informal level outside the classroom. Stern also provides special programming during lunch focused on important business topics and other areas of interest to our students.
