What is an Executive MBA?

An Executive MBA program is designed for professionals who are already leaders in their companies. Weekend classes minimize the interruption to your work schedule.

Why the Neeley Executive MBA Program?

Neeley’s entire focus is on building strategic leaders – ones who can adapt quickly to the volatile business world. More than just a series of management tricks, the Neeley program teaches you how to lead, with a comprehensive understanding of your business and yourself.


You don’t have to wait until graduation to start reaping rewards; you’ll learn things in class you can implement immediately.

Strategic Leadership Model

We’ve strategically structured our program with research on today’s most effective leaders – including insights from leadership development experts Korn/Ferry.

Student Experience

It’s not just about the professors you’ll have or the classes you’ll take. It’s about living every moment of the experience to its fullest.

Work Life Balance

Time may seem like the biggest barrier between you and an MBA, but there are ways the Neeley program makes it easier to find balance.

The Economist

The Economist ranks the TCU Neeley EMBA as #1 in Texas,
#5 in the United States, and #12 overall in the world.

Leading Change: Dr. Carter Tells A Tale of Two Tickers

Have you ever tried a sure-fire strategy – one you knew from experience would work – and then watched it blow up in your face?

That’s what a group of TCU Executive MBA alumni and prospective students discussed a couple of weeks ago at the Preview Luncheon at the City Club of Fort Worth. Dr. Suzanne Carter, professor of strategy, stood in front of the giant window overlooking a rainy downtown and presented us with two logos: Apple and J.C. Penney.

He Was Laid off Mid-Program. He Graduated with a New Business.

When James “Opie” Fair started the Executive MBA program at Neeley, he was well-established with 11 years experience as area and branch manager for a modular building company, where he managed budgets across seven states. After working in this industry for more than 25 years, he was eager to gain knowledge that could benefit both his career and employer. He never expected to be laid off two months before his 12-year anniversary.
