Program Description

The MBA curriculum is a broad-based management education that provides you with the knowledge and skills to assume leadership positions in public and private companies. The program is accredited by AACSB International (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) a distinction held by less than a quarter of the nation’s business schools.              

TSU's Executive MBA is designed to better accommodate the needs of busy professionals. The 12-month program offers a convenient, business friendly schedule with classes meeting on weekends and via online delivery. Required courses are offered in a four week format. Students move through the curriculum together in a cohort model. 

AACSB logoThe first weekend of classes for each module is delivered in a face-to-face format. Classes will be held at a Nashville area hotel from 2 PM until 6 PM on Friday and 8 AM until 4 PM on Saturday.  During the weekend residency, guest speakers and presentations by renowned industry executives will facilitate class instruction and discussion to enhance the learning experience. The second through fourth weekend of classes for each module will be delivered online and via a hybrid model. The third weekend will feature a Saturday morning live lecture via web technology. During the summer semesters, the first week will be a face-to-face classroom experience with the remainder of the classes offered online.

Program participants have the opportunity to spend ten days studying outside the United States to broaden their understanding of leadership in an emerging economy and to experience firsthand the business practices and cultures of a foreign country. The 10-day residency includes class sessions conducted by renowned faculty, visits to multinational corporations, and a host of leadership speakers and cultural immersion excursions.

The Executive MBA provides the same foundation and rigor as our traditional MBA degree with the added bonus of providing a fast track to improved on-the-job performance and the rewards that come with success.
