Sac State EMBA Program Coming to Sac State Downtown in Fall 2019

Sacramento State’s Master of Business Administration for Executives, a renowned and proven EMBA program for nearly 15 years, is coming to Sacramento State Downtown in fall 2019.

Since 2005, the College of Business Administration has graduated more than 875 EMBA students and continues to fuel top positions within leading Fortune 500 companies in Sacramento and the Bay Area. This coming fall, students have the opportunity to attend classes at the Sacramento State Downtown venue at 304 S Street.

“A downtown location is a milestone for the EMBA program and allows us to recruit yet another cohort of top-notch individuals who will become dynamic business leaders and entrepreneurs who will help drive regional economic growth and leverage global business opportunities,” said Dr. Yang Sun, Sacramento State’s EMBA program director, and a professor of supply chain management.

Added Melissa Sheldon, executive director for executive and professional programs in the College of Business Administration, “As one of Sac State’s flagship programs for the last 15 years, the EMBA program has produced a significant number of diverse leaders reshaping business communities in the Sacramento region and beyond. We are thrilled to be coming to the downtown core to plug into the vibrancy and innovation brewing in Sacramento. Our faculty and staff look forward to continuing their inspiring work of transforming the lives of our students aspiring to leadership positions.”

Information sessions are now underway at the Sacramento State downtown location through June 11, 2019. For more information visit the Sacramento State EMBA program.

The Sacramento State EMBA program is an AACSB-accredited degree designed for experienced professionals who aspire to leadership positions, and it can be completed in 15 months.

The program is committed to graduating EMBA students who are prepared to function with integrity as effective top-level leaders in business, government, and professional organizations.

The core curriculum of eight required and four elective courses is structured to allow students to complete the 12 courses in 12 months, with classes held Fridays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Every third week, courses are conducted online allowing students to log in remotely, if necessary. This blended-delivery format allows participants to schedule professional and personal travel around class meetings throughout the year.

Overall, about 35% of the course consists of breakout case study sessions, 25% in group lecture, 25% in group discussions, and 15% in individual presentations.

In addition to developing leadership and communication skills, EMBA graduates will be able to synthesize relevant information from multiple business disciplines. Those disciplines include accounting, finance, marketing, human resources, production, management science, and information technology to perform quantitative and qualitative analyses for leading, planning, and decision-making. –Public Affairs and Advocacy
