Executive MBA is the Graduate Program for Experienced Leaders

When Sandip Basu wanted to improve his company and further his business education, one program stood out: Xavier’s Executive Master of Business Administration.

Basu wanted a curriculum that would prepare him to grow his company to meet the needs of an ever-changing business landscape. As CEO of the Cincinnati-based management consulting company Soft Vista Inc., he also wanted to hear diverse opinions from inquisitive, dedicated peers.

Turns out he got all that and more.

“The EMBA (helped me) quickly adjust to different perspectives, culture and dynamics, and still have all the technical abilities and strategic skills needed for the job,” said the 2014 graduate. “The ability to learn the complexities of different cultures and thinking, and how to bring in different perspectives given the diversity we had in our classroom debates, is a lifetime benefit.”

The Executive MBA is a 16-month program for seasoned corporate executives which immerses students in leadership, team-building and strategy. Students enter as a cohort and progress through the program together, meeting on alternating weekends twice a month. All books and class materials are provided, and a 10-day, international study abroad trip is included in the program.

Created in 1978, Xavier’s program is one of the oldest Executive MBA programs in the nation. It is currently ranked No. 33 in the country on the Best Part-Time MBA list by U.S. News & World Report.

“We are dedicated to educating present and future leaders in business, enabling them to improve their organizations and society within the Jesuit tradition,” said Tom Hayes, Dean of the Williams College of Business. “Our graduates have senior leadership positions at companies such as Fifth Third Bank, Kroger, GE and Procter & Gamble. Our work together is having a regional, national and global impact.”

Are you ready to make an impact? Help us continue the tradition of growing the leaders of tomorrow.
