After graduating its inaugural Executive MBA cohort in the spring of 2011, the UCR School of Business Administration decided to temporarily close the doors to its program in response to what it called “a down market for EMBA programs seen not just regionally but across the nation.” So the school is not currently accepting applications at this time.

Student cohorts, however, are still attending courses in the 21-month program at the UCR Palm Desert Graduate Center on alternating weekends (Fridays and Saturdays). The EMBA also features three week-long residential retreats and a pre-program refresher course to help students get up to speed on the academics.
