Executive MBA Maximizing your career opportunities

Manage Every Step of your Executive Career      

As a Daniels School of Business EMBA student, you can benefit from career management support both while you are in the program and after graduation.

Our support encompasses three parts: career assessment; self-discovery and career development planning; and career skill building. A career management consultant will guide you through these steps and help you leverage your work experience and Purdue EMBA for the next stages of your career.


Our goals:

  • Provide skills to maximize Executive MBA ROI
  • Provide resources for career enhancement
  • Provide guidance for future career progression and management

We present a four-part approach to career management:

  1. Executive coaching
  2. Coursework
  3. In-residence events
  4. Online resources

Get Ahead in Your EXECUTIVE MBA Career

 "The career management aspect of the program was a real surprise for me. I've seen how the staff of the program have engaged certain individuals who have more immediate needs and you know really impressed with the level of support. I was really surprised with how proactive we as students can be in our own careers and the level of tools that are available to us my career goals."

Brian Cronin, EMBA Class of 2021

Executive Coaching

From the start of the program through six months after graduation, you will work with a career management consultant. This person will explore the Birkman assessment, strength analysis, creating a development plan, and defining and improving your personal brand, and will provide general advice and counsel. Having an external, objective resource will encourage you to ask the right questions and get you to the new opportunities you seek.


Core and functional courses offered include Managing Behavior in Organizations, Leadership, Negotiations, Business Law & Ethics, Change Management, and Active Learning Projects.

The Purdue EMBA program offers a wide variety of immersion, or workshop-style, electives, including coaching and mentoring and improving team performance.
