Why the DeGroote EMBA?

With so many EMBA programs in the market, what is it about the EMBA in Digital Transformation that makes it stand out from the crowd?


The DeGroote School of Business and McMaster University have placed digital at the heart of their strategy, creating an ecosystem of research, support and development. The EMBA in Digital Transformation, the upcoming Digital Transformation Research Centre and the MacDATA Big Data Institute are just a few ways that DeGroote and McMaster are leading in the digital transformation space.


The Executive MBA in Digital Transformation has a continuously-evolving curriculum, including customized, integrated cases developed around new and emerging trends in business and technology. A module in Palo Alto emphasizes the digital focus of the program and offers to expand our candidates’ network internationally. The 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. Students will also take part in a Personal Leadership Effectiveness program, which will provide one-on-one coaching throughout their studies.


Our partner network – led by IBM, Rogers, and theScore – helps to guide our program development for practical application. These relationships not only ensure relevant, high-quality content, but will provide access to exciting new networks, case studies, capstone projects, guest speakers, site visits, and more.


At $92,000 CAD, our price point makes the EMBA in Digital Transformation more accessible for organizations and individuals. Tuition is all-inclusive of course materials, accommodations and travel within modules, but does not include some meals or any travel to/from home (e.g. airfare).


Our candidates represent a globally-diverse group spanning healthcare, technology, retail, IT, entertainment and more. Their backgrounds and experience may vary, but all of our candidates recognize the market need for leaders with an understanding of technology, data and digital business.
