Access to the College of Business and Economics’ Top Faculty
With over 14 years of experience delivering the college’s award winning Integrated Business Curriculum, CBE faculty are adept at designing and delivering an integrated learning experience and are skilled at facilitating classroom interaction among experienced students.
Outstanding Peer Group
Classroom and study group interaction is an important part of the Idaho EMBA. Students learn as much from the experience and insights of the other students as they do from the instructors.
Students look at business problems from a CEO’s perspective. They become knowledgeable about key business disciplines, but focus just as much on integrating this knowledge with their prior background and experience.
At the executive level, building cooperative relationships is as important as competing. Our collaborative classroom environment and study groups teach students how to share responsibilities and take advantage of each others’ experience and knowledge for mutual benefit—a skill directly transferable to their work.
Students will have opportunities to design projects that allow them to solve real problems they face at work. This not only enriches their education, but also has a positive impact on job performance.
Students develop a strategic perspective which helps build leadership skills to support their career growth and prepare them for executive responsibilities.
