Programme Details

  • This programme is designed for experienced business executives. Prior to offering its own program, UiTM has been offering the EMBA jointly with Ohio University since 1986 at its Shah Alam campus. The EMBA program has been carefully structured in order to ensure that all courses can be completed within two years even while the executive continues to handle his or her professional duties full-time. This is accomplished by offering courses on Saturdays and Sundays during the two years duration of the programme. An independent research project has to be completed during the second half of the programme.
  • This programme ensures that the participating executives are able to upgrade their managerial skills, broaden their perspectives and improve their opportunities for advancement into higher management. Essentially, this also benefits their organizations.
Programme Overview
Each intake of the EMBA is limited to about 30 students in order to facilitate meaningful discussions and to enable specially selected faculty members to pay individual attention to each student. One of the most important features of the programme is that it advocates student-centred and co-operative learning, where the participants interact with one another as a single group.
