Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose an EMBA?

By choosing an EMBA program, you will be able to continue working while pursuing your degree, and the condensed schedule means you will complete your studies within 13 months. The EMBA also places you face to face with peers in diverse fields who are interested in similar ideas and have similar goals, owing to the unique content of the EMBA in Digital Transformation. This enables focused content, a more engaging experience and a network that will last a lifetime.

Where will I stay during my studies?

Students will stay at the Hilton Homewood Suites and/or Hilton Garden Inn in Burlington (Modules 1, 3 and 4) and Palo Alto (Module 2).

How much is tuition and what is included?

Tuition is set at $89,000 and is inclusive of course materials, accommodation, some meals, and transportation during the module (site visits, shuttle to/from hotel, etc.). This cost does not include transportation to/from your home residence, e.g. flights, busses, train, etc.

What will the time commitment be between modules?

Though it will vary by course and instructor, a conservative estimate is 10 hours per week spent on learning and assignments between each module.

What are the language requirements?

Due to the high-level nature of instruction in the program, international candidates may need to supply IELTS or TOEFL scores if they do not meet certain criteria (e.g. if you have not lived in an English-speaking country for four or more years, or if English was not the primary language of instruction for at least three years of your post-secondary education).

Our score requirements:

IELTS – minimum 7.0 in each section (average score 7.0 or higher)
