Program Description

The Executive MBA (EMBA) was created with you in mind. As a manager with a busy schedule, your time is important. The Louisiana Tech EMBA offers you a value-added degree in a format that accommodates your lifestyle. Complete your EMBA in less than two years. Best of all, you'll have time off from classes in December and the summer months of July and August. The EMBA is a lock-step program so all students in a cohort take the same courses at the same time over the course of the program.
