The Rochester- Bern Executive MBA offers a first-class general management education with an international focus and systematic practical application. It allows participants to earn an international MBA degree from an accredited, leading U.S. business school as well as a national EMBA degree without interrupting their careers.



The diversity of profiles in the classroom is an important characteristic of the EMBA. Classes are composed of executives whose backgrounds range from business to engineering to medical studies. To be admitted to the program, candidates need to fulfill the following requirements:

  • university degree (or equivalent) plus
  • at least 5 years of management experience (as a project or line manager) or 10+ years of managerial and leadership experience in lieu of academic qualifications (sur dossierapplicant)*
  • convincing character with a team spirit
  • ability to set priorities and balance family, job, and studies
  • fluency in English

* Examples for sur dossier students include senior executives who have held a leadership position for at least 10 years or entrepreneurs who have been running their own companies for the same amount of time, but who do not have a university degree (or equivalent).


Candidates for the program are mid or senior-level managers with the potential for taking on increased responsibilities within their organizations.
