Segment 1
Each fall, the Executive MBA Program admits a select cohort of managers and business professionals to enter the Fall-to-Fall, lock-step program. The Executive MBA year begins in mid-August with a week-long residential at Pickwick, TN. In this dynamic, off-site environment, students complete intensive courses in strategic change management, as well as, leadership and team building. 
Following the residential week, Executive MBA classes meet one day a week during the Fall & Spring semesters on alternating Thursday evenings and Saturdays. Classes are held in the state-of-the-art Executive MBA Seminar room in the Fogelman College of Business & Economics Building. A typical Saturday class begins at 7:45am and ends at 5:15pm. The fall and spring semesters consist of three courses each semester, two held in-class and one on-line.
International Residency
At the end of the first year, students participate in a twelve-day residential in a foreign country.  The exciting and demanding schedule includes business visits and meetings with senior executives, lectures at foreign universities by distinguished faculty, and meetings with key officials at government agencies and embassies.  In addition, students participate in directed ethnographic studies, and other cultural immersion experiences.  Previous classes have completed their residencies in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, China, Switzerland, France, Germany, Poland, Turkey, Canada and Mexico.
Segment 2
A second one-week residential, held in mid-August, kicks off the final semester in the program. In this residential component, students are challenged to take their personal development to the next level with intense instruction in corporate governance and ethics, as well as human resource management.
Following the residential week, Executive MBA classes again meet one day a week on alternating Thursday evenings and Saturdays. Upon completion of all 41 credit hours of course work in the seventeen month program, the Executive MBA student graduates in December with a Master of Business Administration degree.
