Graduate Prepared to Lead in 40 Weeks

The Carlow MBA program aims to ensure that business leaders in today’s highly competitive business environment are not only astute, but also fair and compassionate. All MBA programs teach their students how to analyze and resolve difficult problems; but Carlow’s program encourages its students to focus on justice and mercy, not just money. For example, other MBA programs might encourage their students to think through the financial benefits and drawbacks of employee lay-offs; but Carlow pushes its students to consider the human and social costs of such action as well. We infuse corporate responsibility and ethical behavior in each and every one of our courses. It is our hope that this mind set will become part of our graduates’ DNA throughout their careers.

After completing Carlow’s E-MBA degree program, you’ll be ready to be an effective and principled high-level manager in the rapidly evolving world of business. The coursework was designed for experienced, successful mid-career professionals looking to move up the business ladder and earn their seat at the executive table.

You’ll move through challenging and enlightening coursework with the same group of students in a cohort model and benefit from the personalized attention of experienced instructors with diverse business backgrounds.

Graduates are prepared to communicate effectively with IT professionals; understand employment rules, laws and regulations; use data in decision-making; write strategic business plans; function as project managers; and read and interpret financial statements. You’ll be ready to make an immediate impact as you address C-level challenges.


Executive MBA students study business writing, IT management, strategic analysis, marketing management and financial planning. The 30-credit program consists of 10, 8-week courses and prepares students to lead in a complex business world.
