Executive MBA students

The Freeman School has announced a new Executive MBA fellowship program for non-profit, minority and women-owned businesses. The fellowships, which will cover 50 percent of the program's tuition, will be available to students in the New Orleans and Houston EMBA programs beginning in January 2010.

"A vibrant non-profit and small-business sector is critical to the continued growth of the community, and the Executive MBA program can provide these organizations with the leadership and management skills they need to grow and succeed," says Russ Robins, associate dean for executive education. "We think this fellowship program is a great way for the Freeman School to further our commitment to the local business community and support the critical work being done by non-profit, minority-owned and women-owned businesses throughout the region."

The Freeman School's Executive MBA program is ranked among the top programs in the world. EMBA students represent nearby businesses and organizations and 70 percent or more of a typical EMBA class live and work within 100 miles of campus. The program's alternate-weekend, 18-month schedule makes it an convenient, attractive option for working managers and professionals.

Applications for the Executive MBA fellowship program will be accepted through September 2009 for the next EMBA class, which begins in January 2010.
