The ideal Executive MBA candidate is a highly motivated, hard-working professional seeking an intense program that will propel them forward in their career, while keeping the balance between work and family commitments. Broad Executive MBA students demand a rigorous and challenging program where they’ll gain knowledge and experience along with the nationally recognized degree.

You will connect with your classmates, faculty and staff; gain best practices from a current student panel; and develop the strong team dynamics/priorities that are essential to your success.

All of this provides you with a crucial foundation for your Executive MBA experience.
Classes officially begin in September, yet students should expect to do significant preparation between orientation and residency.

The MSU Executive MBA class profile features many mid-career professionals who seek to prepare themselves for the next step in their career. Each class cohort includes individuals who are already in the “C-suite” and those who strive to get there; it is this great mix of talent and experience that create a vibrant learning environment.
This is certainly the case with the MSU Executive MBA! Our program has the rigor of a full-time MBA, just in a compressed format. In fact, the Michigan State University diplomas are even the same: “Master’s of Business Administration.”
Unlike other MBA programs, the Broad Executive MBA offers a no-hassle, no-surprises, all-inclusive tuition package that delivers high return on investment.
The Broad Executive MBA requires two one-week residencies: one domestic and one international. Both are designed to create value while recognizing our students’ demanding schedules.
While the MSU Executive MBA has many corporate partners, our program welcomes many individuals who partially or fully fund their education. In fact, approximately 75 percent of our students fund at least part of their investment.
