Program highlight: executive MBA

Our executive MBA is not your everyday graduate business degree. Our specialized curriculum is designed with you in mind because it focuses on topics relevant to food, agriculture, and biosystems professionals. Content is developed by industry executives and faculty from the Ivy College of Business and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Each course is created to be immediately applicable in real-world situations.

Our 21-month program also includes customized features, such as our leadership speaker series, international business experience, and a three-day working trip to Washington D.C. Each opportunity gives you behind-the-scenes access to how business and government operate.

This premier program is tailored to busy professionals in the food, agriculture, and biosystems industries.

Program features include:

  • two study trips (Washington D.C. and one international destination)
  • leadership speaker series featuring high-profile executives
  • concierge service — we take care of the details so you can focus on the big picture
  • team members with extensive business experience
  • no summer classes
  • predetermined courses so you’ll know your schedule the day you apply
  • classes meet every three weeks on Friday and Saturday
