The Rollins MBA at the Crummer Graduate School of Business today announced that it is offering an advanced management program, called the Key Executive MBA (KEMBA), designed for senior executives and business leaders. The program is modeled on key elements of the most progressive executive MBA programs in the country and is structured to provide an MBA degree through an innovative approach focused on strategic leadership.
The Rollins KEMBA program’s curriculum is team-taught and integrates various business disciplines to give executives a deep understanding of all aspects of business — from accounting and finance to marketing and the global environment — in a way that enables graduates to effect change in organizations and society. The program uses blended learning, and takes advantage of the valued interaction with faculty and peers to emphasize strategic thinking, leadership and global content. This experiential learning, combined with limited class size and focus on real business challenges, enables the development of skills and connections required of executives in times of rapid and significant change.
The Rollins KEMBA program enables students to develop cross-functional problem-solving skills that can be immediately useful to their organizations. It features an interactive online component where students learn the program fundamentals. This knowledge is further applied when students meet once a month, on campus, to engage with professors and peers in a classroom setting. The result is a practical learning experience that makes the most of valuable classroom time and student interaction with high-level peers.
“The Key Executive MBA program at Crummer has been developed specifically to address the skill development needs of today’s business leaders,” said Craig McAllaster, dean of the Rollins MBA at the Crummer Graduate School of Business. “Executives participating in the program will be able to share ideas, learn from their peers and immediately apply these skills to their organizations.”
The Rollins Key Executive MBA program will commence on August 25, 2010. For more information on the Key Executive MBA program, go to: mba.rollins.edu/kemba.
