Whether you’re aspiring to a senior leadership position or already have attained one, Vanderbilt Executive MBA enables you to earn a world-class MBA in 21 months —the same degree awarded to our weekday students — while offering you advantages you’re not likely to find elsewhere. 

The program meets on alternating Saturdays, allowing you to maintain and enhance your career. In your second year, you can choose between one of two tracks: the Executive Edge Track, which focuses on strategic skills and advanced financial acumen to drive your career enhancement, or the Global Immersion Track, in which you’ll become part of an international cohort and prepare to take on cross-border assignments in your next leadership role.

Whatever track you choose, you’ll benefit from apply-it-now experiences built into our core curriculum that you can apply right away in your career, helping you (and your employer) enjoy an immediate return on your MBA investment. Our program also includes leadership and professional development that prepare you not only to manage but also to lead. 

You will join a cohort of 50 curious, adaptable, and self-aware students, as well as a supportive alumni network that stays with you for life.

From Vanderbilt EMBA Alumni:

“[The program] has literally changed my life—given me confidence to redirect my career and helped me to feel valuable again. It has made me more resilient at work and better at my job, while exposing me to new ideas, places, and people.”

Madhumita Murphy
Vanderbilt Executive MBA, 2019

“Halfway through the program I received a significant promotion. Peers and supervisors commented that my value to the business increased dramatically – specifically my ability to operate cross-functionally within the organization and link separate parts of the business in order to deliver improved results.”

John Terzo
Vanderbilt Executive MBA, 2017
