The University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) is Nevada's land-grant institution. Founded in 1874 and serving 21,000 students, UNR offers the opportunity to customize an academic path with more than 460 undergraduate & graduate degree, certificate & minor programs within 12 academic colleges and schools.
The College of Business at UNR offers an Executive MBA (EMBA) “designed for mid-career executives and experienced professionals who want to advance in today’s challenging work world,” says the school. This 36 credit hour (12-course) program is offered as a two-year cohort beginning in fall and each class runs for 12 weeks. All coursework may be completed entirely online. Courses for UNR’s AACSB-accredited EMBA program “are sequenced to assure continuity in learning”.
Course highlights for the program include Economics of the Firm, Information and Communications Technology in Organizations, Personal Branding, Management and Organizational Science, Managing Organizations in a Global Economy, Personal Branding, and Strategic Management for Executives. Because the EMBA is rigorous degree program that requires a significant time commitment, students can expect to spend at least 10–12 hours each week on course assignments, discussions, and research.
The EMBA at UNR is open to those who hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited four-year institution and any undergraduate major is acceptable. However, applicants must have five or more years of professional work experience beyond undergraduate studies.
UNR EMBA students are required to complete their degree in two years. Each year is divided into three semesters (fall, spring, and summer), with each containing two courses.
