Master in Business Administration for Executives, MBA


Program Director: W. Scott Guthrie
Telephone: 303-623-1888 or 1-800-228-5778

The executive MBA program provides executive-level students with a broad, rigorous 21-month academic experience leading to the master of business administration degree. The program is designed for persons who hold managerial positions in the private and public sectors. It builds upon the knowledge and experience of these executives with a sophisticated, challenging curriculum that can be pursued simultaneously without career interruption.

The executive MBA program emphasizes strategic leadership; the organization in a complex, international environment; and the applied tools of management. Courses are taught through a variety of methods. Case studies, lectures and computer simulation are combined with research projects and other teaching methods to provide students with tools useful in their present positions and applicable to more advanced responsibilities as they progress in their management careers.

Each new session of the executive MBA program begins the last week of August. Classes meet for a full day, once a week, on alternating Fridays and Saturdays, making it possible for those who live outside the Denver area to participate.

Two courses are taken simultaneously throughout the program. The program is supplemented by an intensive orientation at the beginning and a two-day seminar at the conclusion of the first academic year. A second-year seminar is held at an international business center outside of North America.
