The Executive Graduate Programs Office in the College of Business at Florida Atlantic University is home to the 23-month Executive MBA program. With courses offered every third weekend, our full service program is specially designed for those with busy personal and Executive commitments as well as for those who prefer the convenience of a full service structured cohort program.

The focus of the Executive MBA program is to provide an environment where a concentrated effort between professor and student results in the mastery of all of the components of a graduate-level, business administration curriculum.

Upon completion of our Executive MBA program, you will have earned the Master of Business Administration degree. The program allows participants to continue their Executive responsibilities while earning a regionally-accredited MBA degree as full-time graduate students. Each class begins and progresses through the program as a group, sharing the same sequence of classes and educational experiences.

The Executive MBA degree program is held at the Boca Raton campus and begins each fall and spring semester.
