The VU Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) program enables high-caliber, experienced managers, executives and entrepreneurs to combine business education with their professional lives. Committed to learning, VU cares about the participants' personal and career development. EMBA participants hold management positions in their organizations. Therefore, they can immediately apply what they have learned in a professional context. An advantage of the EMBA over full-time programs is the rare chance it offers EMBA participants to go back-and-forth between school and work. VU's EMBA program is designed with this in mind, which provides comfortable off-campus periods for the EMBA participant to connect theory to practice.
