Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) Global Entrepreneurship

The Executive Master of Business Administration Global Entrepreneurship program at Franklin University Switzerland is offered as a joint degree program with aSSIST. It is structured to be completed in 12 months. This program is offered to key individuals currently in corporations (intrapreneurs) or planning to become entrepreneurs, who wish to integrate their expertise with global management skills. The innovative curriculum combines and reflects latest trends on the conventional business theories.

The EMBA program provides an excellent core curriculum that combines key individual courses including strategy, marketing, finance and leadership. The curriculum differentiates by our focus to deliver new business insights and global management skills, the changing trends and business environment as well as a new idea of leadership, responsible and collaborative. Furthermore, the program guides the participants to the understanding of entrepreneurial business cycles and the phenomenon of “unicorn” organizations. South Korea, despite having the world's highest recognized innovation rate, lacks a developed culture and infrastructure for entrepreneurship that can generate the next generation of unicorn companies. This EMBA seeks to become a first educating step towards such vision.

The Executive MBA program is currently pending approval by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
