WHY THE EXECUTIVE WOMEN’S MBA AT BRENAU?
The partnership between two of Brenau’s most innovative and academically rigorous units provides a focused leadership opportunity to a small cadre of driven women. The need is great and the time is now: In 2018 only 4.8 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs were women, and that was down from 6.4 percent in 2017. Social research clearly demonstrates that commercial and societal success and fulfillment are only reached when women achieve their full potential and contribute to cumulative success at levels equal to men. The Executive Women’s MBA at The Women’s College of Brenau University aspires to help women reach that potential.
The Executive Women’s MBA features a hybrid online and on-ground program that offers the flexibility that busy women need with opportunities for networking and community they want. It provides these opportunities while focusing the curricular and cocurricular content specifically on the unique challenges women face, something no other MBA program does. The Brenau Executive Women’s MBA fosters multiple avenues to the pinnacle of personal success to a woman, designed and taught by successful women at a time when there is no greater need.
