EMBA Graduate Program

Request More Information

Macon's only executive master of business administration program

From the start we have intentionally kept our classes small. Not only do students enjoy a close, personal relationship with professors, but also with a tight-knit cohort of like-minded professionals. Today, getting a social education while practicing social distancing is more important than ever before.

Develop your leadership skills and deepen your knowledge of the ever-changing global business environment through Wesleyan’s intensive 18-month fast-track program with classes scheduled on alternate weekends so that you can pursue an advanced business education without interrupting your career. 

Through Wesleyan’s Executive MBA Program, students benefit from the individual attention of a dedicated faculty and gain global business perspective through visits to companies across the world. The 18-month program schedule is tailored specifically for mid-and senior-level executives in established careers. Your program experience includes all books, materials, and a study abroad component.

According to students, the Executive MBA curriculum is challenging but also immediately relevant to today’s global business concerns. With so many advantages of a Wesleyan EMBA our graduates have great things to say about this graduate program and how it has enabled them to advance their careers.

Sandra Gardner
MBA '02

What I gained through the EMBA Program has been quite valuable. The curriculum offers stimulating challenges particularly with independent thinking, group work, public speaking, and study of academic areas I had previously not had extensive exposure to. Through the relationships with my fellow students, I gained a network of diverse and skilled professionals from many different fields and areas of expertise.


Lean Green and Six Sigma Green training is included in the curriculum of Wesleyan's EMBA program. Both have become a valued certification in many industries. You will learn how to integrate principles of business, statistics, and engineering to achieve tangible results to help improve the quality of your work environment and processes that fulfill your organization's mission. Students must pass a national exam in order to earn certification. Students are responsible for the $199 exam fee.
