Your time in the program includes four Executive Seminars (one per semester) that build a strong sense of community among students. Before diving into your first fall courses, you’ll spend a week in Austin at your first Executive Seminar. During this required residency, you’ll meet your new classmates, professors, the dean, and tour the campus. You’ll be teamed with your cohorts, prepare for your first executive challenge, and be provided with a clear framework for the upcoming intensive study of financial accounting, statistics and decision analysis, and leading people and organizations.
In your final semester in the program, you will participate in an International Seminar to tour companies and meet with local business leaders to gain perspective on how business is conducted in other parts of the world. In past semesters, this seminar has taken students to Beijing, China

The spring semester concludes with your second Executive Seminar. This three-day seminar aims to turn your first year of learning into practical work. You’ll examine specific business problems and solutions, while learning about modern, relevant topics such as: Building Advocacy Skills; Corporate Responsibility; and Organizations & the Media.
The summer offers plenty of options to continue your first year’s momentum.

As an alternative, you can spend an intensive three days studying public policy through our Washington Campus residency elective.

Or you can simply take the summer off, if you complete your electives during the long semester, and re-energize for the fall.
