Course Descriptions


Wagner's Executive MBA Program is designed to provide middle-level managers and professionals the behavioral-management skills necessary to advance within and effect change in their organizations. Academic rigor and managerial relevance are combined to ensure that participants are equipped with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to cope with the dynamic business environment that managers face in the twenty-first century.

Unlike traditional Executive MBA programs, where the emphasis is on number-crunching, Wagner's program is designed to manage an organization's most critical resource — its people. Team building, communication, motivation, and decision-making skills are stressed throughout the curriculum.

The program is structured to accommodate the active schedules of managers and administrators. Students are able to complete their degree in less than two years (19 months) by attending classes on Saturdays, without interruption to their careers.
