Program Details

The Executive MBA in Digital Transformation is comprised of continuously-changing curriculum and custom, integrated cases developed around current and emerging trends in business and technology. Our module-based, blended-learning format is unique amongst EMBAs and provides our students and their employers with the flexibility necessary to fit their busy schedules, and our international module in Palo Alto emphasizes the digital-focus of the program and expands our candidates’ network internationally. Students will also take part in a Personal Leadership Effectiveness program, which will provide one-on-one coaching throughout their studies.

The program is built around four residency modules. Concentrating classroom requirements into these modules makes travel more practical for candidates. Each module is 10-12 days long. They are held either at our campus in Burlington, Ontario, or in Palo Alto, California. Candidates participate in online work between modules.

As an EMBA in Digital Transformation student, you will:

  • Study core EMBA topics such as finance, marketing, and strategy, while also learning technical content more often associated with master-level courses in data science and business analytics.
  • Learn how to use data to make strategic decisions, mitigate risk, and drive business innovation.
  • Broaden your technical and managerial knowledge while deepening your strategic thinking skills and leadership capabilities.
