But Auburn University's Executive MBA program bends the rules. Instead of requiring students to visit campus every week, the 21-month-long program works with adult students' complex schedules. Offering the benefits of face-to-face interaction with the flexibility of online learning, Auburn's EMBA program combines distance learning with a weeklong residency during each of the program's five semesters. During online courses, students stay connected through virtual classroom discussions and easy access to professors. At the midpoint of the program, students take an international trip to study global business practices. Mirroring the EMBA program, Auburn also offers a highly-ranked Physicians EMBA program to help physicians gain the leadership and business acumen needed to thrive in the ever-changing world of healthcare. The experience and background of Auburn EMBA students sets the program apart. Participants average 16 years of industry experience and come from a variety of backgrounds, such as IT, manufacturing, and consulting. "The program gives students an expanded understanding of the integrated, big picture of business and provides them opportunities to develop and hone the skills needed to effectively lead their organizations into the future," says Stan Harris, PhD, associate dean of Graduate and International Programs For more in Auburn's Harbert College of information: Business.
