Faculty and Grading 


Only at Coles

Coles Executive MBA is the only program that has a core EMBA faculty team dedicated solely to our students. This key differentiator of our program is just one of the reasons why our alumni rank our faculty higher than peer school faculty in terms of accessibility, mentorship and business acumen each year.

This world-class team is made up of top academic researchers and seasoned executives who have decades of professional business experience. Coles’ faculty is actively involved in both the business and academic communities.


I found the program to be a great place to fill in weaknesses and most of all build confidence. I would have never had the confidence to start a business without the tools and support from the EMBA program. The faculty's desire to see me win was inspiring. Great program and great people!

Hunter Thornton, Class of 2010, YonderWorks


Direct access to world's top business experts
Coles’ students learn not only from the EMBA faculty and peers in the classroom, but students gain direct exposure to some of the world's top business leaders and experts in their fields.

Grading that reflects real business

As an adult learner and experienced professional your grades should reflect the way the world evaluates your performance. Accordingly, the Coles Executive MBA grades you on real world deliverables and not through rote memorization or traditional examinations. As a result, your grades become useful in evaluating how you are doing in the workplace.

As a seasoned professional, it was important to me to select a program that understands grades as a way to benchmark my professional development rather than testing me through memorization type examinations.
