U of U MBA Program to Undergo Changes

Press Release

March 3, 2014

Salt Lake City — The University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business has announced an upcoming change to its executive MBA program. Beginning fall semester 2014, classes will be held every other week on Friday and Saturday, allowing students to complete the program in 21 months. Previously, the program required students to attend classes Friday or Saturday every week.

“Today’s business executives are working longer hours and traveling more than ever before, putting greater demand on their personal lives and free time,” said Brad Vierig, associate dean of part-time MBA programs at the David Eccles School of Business. “The new EMBA format allows working professionals more flexibility to attend the program and will better help them achieve their goal of obtaining an MBA.”

The program’s other features will remain the same, including the global focus of the curriculum, which includes a mid-program week “Managing in the Global Economy,” held in Vancouver, B.C. “We’re confident the changes we’ve made will enhance the student experience and produce more top-quality executives for our growing economy,” continued Vierig.
