THIBODAUX, La. — The College of Business Administration at Nicholls State University announces the formation of its 11th Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) cohort. With classes scheduled to start in early 2020, the program will be conducted in Thibodaux, La., in the Michelle Guidry Executive Classroom.

In today’s competitive business environment, organizational leaders need the knowledge, skills, and abilities to make complex business decisions. For that reason, the primary focus of the Nicholls EMBA program is business analysis and decision making.

The 18-month, “lock-step” program is designed for the working professional, where participants begin and complete the program together. This approach allows students to develop lasting professional networks and long-term friendships.

According to recent EMBA graduate David Decuir, Technical Solutions Manager at Danos, “Pursuing an EMBA at Nicholls State University was one of the best personal and business decisions I have made. The skills that I developed through the program have elevated my decision-making capabilities, which has allowed me to add more value to my organization and to the customers we serve.”

Another EMBA graduate, Jeff Evans, CEO at OrthoLA, adds, “The EMBA faculty at Nicholls educate business professionals on how to implement financial strategies for real value creation and sustainable growth in the marketplace.  Data analysis coupled with proven business practices make-up the framework for honing decision-making capabilities, while molding leadership skills that have real-world application – skills that can be applied immediately.”

In addition to Danos and OrthoLA, other Nicholls EMBA graduates are employed by an impressive array of public and private organizations, including Microsoft, Conrad Shipyards, Chevron, Otto Candies, T. Baker Smith, Synergy Bank, and John Deere, to name a few.

Each EMBA cohort is limited to 15 individuals. Admission is competitive, and candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible. To be eligible, candidates should possess an undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university, have three or more years of full-time professional experience, and post an acceptable score on either the GMAT or GRE. Applicants with managerial, technical or budgetary responsibilities may be eligible for a GMAT/GRE waiver. Likewise, candidates that have earned a 3.3+ GPA from AACSB accredited institution are also eligible for the GMAT/GRE exemption.

To be considered, individuals must complete an online application; pay the application fee; send a current resume; send transcripts from all higher education institutions; submit two letters of recommendation from professional associates and, if necessary, an official GMAT/GRE score.
