Welcome to the Sandermoen School of Business Executive MBA program. At Sandermoen, we focus on the essence of leadership for personal, corporate, and organizational success. Our programs have been designed by a special corps of highly qualified professors who have deep and successful career experiences in both professional business and academic practice, and who are determined to provide you with an education that is thorough, engaging, challenging, and relevant to leaders.
The Executive MBA
Our fully online Executive MBA is designed for advanced-career professionals who aspire to lead their companies towards much higher performance. The curriculum begins with coverage of fundamental management essentials such as financial, analytical and decision-making skills, and knowledge of an organization’s core functions and interactions. From there, students can tailor their degree by entering one of our specialty streams, creating a unique experience that can best address the industries and areas most relevant to them.
Our Executive MBA program is designed to augment your skills as a leader, further develop your ability to think critically, and facilitate an environment of collaborative learning by connecting you to students across Canada and around the world. Our online learning environment provides the flexibility for you to obtain this next level of education without putting your life and your career on hold.
We aim to prepare advanced-career professionals and managers for senior managerial positions, without interrupting their career momentum. To accomplish this, we provide highly-qualified faculty, a variety of educational tools and techniques, some of the most advanced online teaching and learning applications available, and a carefully designed suite of courses delivered in a focused schedule.
The Online Experience
To maximize the global learning experience throughout the program, our students will participate in “live” seminars and/or conferences with experienced leaders from global organizations. Our students and faculty are not limited by geographical boundaries, providing a new educational experience that allows learners to think with a global perspective while working on case studies and projects with other colleagues from around the world.
Our live seminars, also known as “virtual classes” or “vClasses”, are hosted by Cisco WebEx and are held once a week. For the convenience of our students, our Technical Support department is always available during vClasses to provide assistance as needed.
There are fourteen courses: ten foundation courses, three specialization courses including electives, and one capstone integration project (see curriculum below). Courses are completed in a seven-week fixed-agenda format. If courses are taken in a typical seven-week fixed-agenda format, the duration of the EMBA program is two years, five months.
