What makes our integrated curriculum different?

Case Method. Our curriculum is based on case studies – which not only means it’s based on real-world research, it also gives you context to apply the principles you learn in class to your own organization.

Individual Learning. Our faculty work to address every learning style – whether you learn by reading, hearing, seeing or doing. A variety of teaching methods ensures each lesson is clear and memorable. Plus, classes are small enough to allow professors to provide individual attention.

Cohort Learning. All students who enroll each fall semester will take courses together as a “cohort” for the entire 18 months. Many of the projects are team-based, dividing the class into teams of four or five. The teams rotate, so you’ll have the chance to work closely with each of your classmates.

Class Discussion. One of the advantages of the Neeley Executive MBA program over a traditional program is that every single one of your classmates is a teacher. Each has valuable work experience that feeds into your classroom experience, and when you’re all sharing, discussing and asking questions, the value of each class increases tenfold.

Application and Reflection. You won’t just see how these principles could apply to your work; you’ll actually implement them. One of the final projects in the program is a strategic plan to improve your own organization.

Adaptive to Your Needs. Every Executive MBA class is different, and our faculty recognize and develop their content uniquely to each, using agile teaching methods to personalize the program, presenting the curriculum in the way that’s most relevant to you.

Lead by example. And by research.

The Korn/Ferry and Neeley Leadership Development Program.

Strategic Leadership Model

Neeley is one of a select group of premier business schools to partner with Korn/Ferry International – the leadership development experts trusted by 92 percent of Fortune 100 companies. Korn/Ferry assessed millions of executives and identified the leadership competencies of top performers across all industries and regions of the globe.

In the Neeley Agile Strategic Leadership Model, we’ve identified the 25 of these core competencies that are most relevant to our students – dividing them into categories as they relate to you, to others and to your organization.

These competencies are a focus throughout the program – in classes, coaching sessions and the development of your Personal Leadership Development Plan, again making an integrated learning experience that is unparalleled.

Now offering electives.

Executive MBA students can now choose up to three electives from our graduate program offerings, such as Demand Forecast Management or Managing Conflict for Results. You can audit these classes in the spring after completing the core curriculum. No exams or grading – just a certificate of completion and the knowledge you need.
