You’ve always had that spark.

So far, your drive to excel and your willingness to go the extra mile have served you well. But now, you find yourself in search of what’s next — the spark of a new opportunity that can catalyze the next leap in your career. That’s where Robinson’s Executive MBA program comes in. We build a program around a select group of working professionals who are looking to broaden their understanding of business and leverage that knowledge to accelerate their career.

Classes begin each August in Buckhead. Applications are reviewed on a rolling admissions basis. The application deadline is June 1, 2017, but we will continue to accept and review applications until the class is full.

We encourage you to create a Robinson Connection account to learn more about the program and engage with us.

Applications ask for basic biographical and educational data. They also contain short questions. These questions are your opportunity to highlight qualities that are relevant to success in a graduate business program but may not be reflected in test scores and past academic records. It is important to answer all questions thoroughly and thoughtfully, as the application is your means of informing us about yourself.
