The AUS's Executive Master of Business Administration (Executive M.B.A.) program utilizes an efficient, modular structure that enables students to apply their knowledge and skills directly to organizations.

The Executive M.B.A.'s core goal is to equip students with the skill sets they will need to make significant contributions to the short-term, medium-term, and long-term goals of any organization they will work for. Through personalized career counseling and coaching, the program helps students to understand their leadership style, strengthen their leadership abilities, and increase their self-awareness. Students will learn and develop the business communication skills that will enable them to generate innovative ideas and initiatives for organizations; they will become familiar with the multiple dimensions that define organizations; and they will learn the leadership skills needed for a business to scale up or start new ventures. Moreover, the program constantly evolves to keep up with the latest findings in management research and will be improved upon continuously in order to keep up with the economically and politically turbulent world in which business executives must operate.

The Executive M.B.A. program has four concentrations, requiring students to take the two specialized courses after completing the core requirements, as follows:

  • HMMB01: Professional Executive Practice
