Program Launch Week

Each program begins with a program launch, providing the foundation to achieve success as a Purdue Executive MBA student. You will spend this time meeting and interacting with faculty, staff, and your fellow students. In addition to team building exercises and classroom learning, you will be introduced to Purdue University systems and resources to help you make the most of your 19-month EMBA journey.

Check out a sample launch week schedule to see how we blend traditional coursework with group work, and provide important resources for our students.
