EMBA Program Committee

  • Mandate

    The Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA Program Committee is the Faculty Council committee responsible for the academic policies applicable to, and the curriculum of, the Joint Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA Program. It should be noted that the academic policies and curriculum of the Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA are also subject to a governance role for the Kellogg School of Management. This role is reflected by the membership of the Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA Program Committee, that  includes one individual from the Kellogg school.

    The Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA Program Committee works with the Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA Academic Director to review the effectiveness and appropriateness of the course content and formatting, and to prepare proposals for additions or changes to the curriculum for consideration by Faculty Council (and ultimately, by the Faculty of Graduate Studies). The Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA Program Committee also considers academic regulations that pertain to the Kellogg-Schulich Executive MBA. Such regulations deal with matters of admission criteria, grading standards, academic standing, academic appeals, rate of progress, and other matters related to the academic expectations of the program.

    Recommendations on the following issues are forwarded to Faculty Council for approval:

    • Curricular changes
    • New course proposals
    • Amendments to existing courses
