BGU's EMBA is a U.S. accredited, values-driven degree for working adults that takes into account the worldwide marketplace trends and the need for socially responsible businesses in today's globalizing world. The EMBA is offered as a 36-credit hour online degree program that can be completed in two years.
The BGU DNA is stewardship of people, places, profit, and the planet. Our business program is designed to create a holistic approach to this process. Each class, and every interaction guides students to understand how to frame their work and faith through this lens of stewardship.
Students are required to create their own Personal Learning Community (PLC) of three to five people who will serve as encouragement and constructive skill building and character development feedback system for the duration of the degree program. The PLC can be comprised of close friends, family, co-workers, mentors, organization leaders to whom the student will be accountable for their studies and development. BGU recognizes that students who utilize the PLC are more successful in their studies and therefore requires this as part of the program participation.
Each course is nine (9) weeks long. Students read extensively, discuss topics in virtual chat rooms each week, and design final projects that apply each course's learning outcomes to their specific situation.
BGU minimizes lectures and applies Judeo-Christian principles to practical business topics using current case studies, discussions with expert practitioners, and all through a cross-cultural lens.
