Teammates, Hugo Soll and Laura Nguyen, participate in an ethics session during residency in Rochester.
We created a unique and differentiated program that leverages our 20-year-old on-campus curriculum and the applied focus that RIT is known for. The education we provide is strong in terms of the basics of business. But it is contemporary, pragmatic, and applied immediately by our students. Many of our faculty have business experience. I was at Xerox for 30 years. This is an absolutely relevant, applied graduate education for people who want to further their careers and be successful for the next 25-30 years.

The RIT Online Executive MBA
A 17-Month, Rigorous, Personal and Transformational Experience for Mid-Career Executives
The RIT Online Executive MBA is an immersive 17-month program for highly motivated, successful, experienced executives who are looking to expand their roles and their careers. The program provides a strong foundation in all areas of business, such as leadership, accounting, and finance, as well as distinctively unique RIT courses in technology management, product commercialization, and international business and finance.
All coursework reflects RIT s emphasis on pragmatic, hands-on learning complemented by an international viewpoint. Students find immediate application of their coursework to their work lives, which is regularly noted by co-workers and supervisors alike. The rapid pace of this program makes it possible for students to earn an MBA in just over a year, while gaining skills and knowledge that will be applied throughout their careers.
Personal, Collaborative, Supportive
Despite its intensity, this is a remarkably personal, collaborative, and supportive program. Each class is taught by two instructors, both of whom offer a dedicated live weekly session. The frequent engagement with students and high faculty-student ratio humanizes and elevates this online learning experience. Although each session is recorded for the students who cannot be present, most students attend as many classes as possible.
3 Days on Campus, A Week Overseas
At the beginning of the program, students meet for three days on campus. They attend their first classes, engage in leadership and team-building exercises, and meet faculty, their leadership, research, and writing coaches, and their alumni mentor. Later in the program, students come together once more for their week-long international business trip.
The program brings together hand-selected teams of three to five students with similar levels of experience but from different disciplines and complementary backgrounds. Teams share all their classes and most of their assignments together throughout the entire program. The importance of the team experience and the emphasis on personal engagement are designed to prepare students for the distinctive 18-week Capstone Consulting project with outside business clients that takes place at the end of the program.
The RIT Online Executive MBA program creates a rigorous, collaborative, and elite forum of innovators and leaders. Participants develop fresh thinking regarding their work, their personal impact, and themselves.
When you say you have a degree from RIT everybody says, Oooh . It was the prestige of the university that first attracted me to the program. As soon as I put down on my LinkedIn profile that I was an RIT EMBA degree candidate, I was contacted by five recruiters. One was for a management position for a global company with direct reports from throughout South America. In my own company we re already talking about next steps.
