All Executive MBA students follow the same rigorous, time-tested curriculum.

Explore this page to learn more about the timing and structure of the program, or see the full schedules* for our campuses in Chicago, London, and Hong Kong.

*Given the likelihood of continued global travel and visa disruptions in some regions, we have made adjustments to the 2022 program schedule. Students will begin with a virtual Launch and a Kick-Off Week at their home campus. International session weeks have been scheduled for October and November 2023.

Quarter One: Autumn

Your program begins with a Kick-Off Week in Chicago, with your classmates from all three cohorts, from all over the world. This is followed by an international session week in London and a session week in Hong Kong.

Quarters Two through Four: Winter–Summer

Home Campus Course
Following the international Autumn Quarter, you return to your home campus with your local cohort. Although you take classes at your home campus, all Executive MBA students follow the same rigorous curriculum. Each campus sets its own course schedule.
