    Business Administration – Executive Option

    The executive masters of business administration option is a rigorous program in general management for fully employed professionals. Designed for managers and professionals who have at least five years of full-time managerial work experience, it consists of courses similar to the full-time MBA program but is unique in reflecting the work and management experience of its students. The Executive MBA is a general degree and does not offer specialization in functional areas.

    All Executive MBA classes are offered at the BYU Salt Lake Center in downtown Salt Lake City in a weekend format. Classes are held every other weekend on Friday from noon to 6:30 p.m. and on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

    Obtaining an MBA degree through the executive MBA option requires a year-round commitment for two years. Students spend one residency week on campus at the beginning of each school year in a complex case analysis and other concentrated study. Executive MBA classes are not available to students outside the Executive MBA program.
