Working professionals with seven to 10 years of work experience and a bachelor’s degree can earn an MBA in less than two years through the program offered by UCR’s A.

Overview of the EMBA program
According to the program’s website, applications for the Executive M.B.A. program are accepted throughout the year though the program only accepts student during the fall term. Successful candidates demonstrate progressive personal achievement including leadership ability and experience, particularly mid- to senior-level professionals who have the opportunity to complete EMBA program requirements on alternative weekends (Friday and Saturdays) over a 20-month period without students having to interrupting their careers.
The EMBA is in a convenient format, the value added high level of student services, and the greater experience level of the learning community members. Each new entering class of working professional students begins the EMBA program in a residential retreat that brings them together as a close-knit group. Cohorts are formed and begin the program with a one-week residential where they become acquainted with their interdependent community that stays together for the entire program.
