The Executive MBA Program

The Executive MBA Program at Rockhurst University is designed to serve local and regional professionals in developing their executive capability. The program awards a Master of Business Administration degree.

The Helzberg School of Management offers this program as a mid-career development experience for early high potential, middle-, and upper-level managers to enhance their general management abilities. A new cohort begins each fall and meets all day on alternate Saturdays throughout the fall and spring semesters, for four semesters. Students are also enrolled in a summer session between the two academic years. The Helzberg School admissions selection process is competitive and caps its cohort class size at 25 students.

The Executive student gains skills and knowledge from lectures, case studies, projects, guided simulations, and interaction with peers, guests and experienced faculty.

The Rockhurst University Executive MBA program, begun in 1978, was the first executive program in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The program of study allows the executive to step beyond his or her current position to explore and test personal and professional capabilities for new and greater growth and responsibility.

Applicants should contact the Executive MBA Office at (816) 501-4091 for more information.

Executive MBA courses are designated by 7000-level course numbers. Students must complete the entire degree with a minimum of 48 hours and a 3.0 grade point average.
