The EMBA program is cohort-driven and structured so that students within any cohort complete a program of 20 courses. Normally, the program will be delivered over four academic terms, and the contact time per course will be 26 hours, recognizing the experience of the candidates, and the extended time between classes which will allow the assignment of more course-related work to be completed outside of the classroom environment. In some instances, the program may be offered over a shorter duration. When this happens, the contact time per course will increase as the expectation for students to complete course-related work between classes will be lower. The twenty course program structure is outlined in Table 1 - Master of Business Administration (Executive Option) Program of Study.

Five courses will be chosen by the Faculty of Business Administration to meet the needs of each cohort.
Students in the EMBA program may apply to complete up to two courses in the regular MBA program. Approval will be given if:
the student can demonstrate a need for a course which is not offered to their cohort, but which is available in the regular MBA program;
the student can demonstrate that there is a course being offered to their cohort that does not meet their specific needs;
the student is able to attend classes at the time and place that the course is offered in the regular MBA program;
sufficient resources are available to allow the student to take the course in the regular MBA program.
Any program changes, including those described in 1. through 3. above, must have the prior approval of the Dean of Graduate Studies on the recommendation of the Faculty of Business Administration.
