The Denver Executive MBA, for Leaders Who Dare to Do More

The hybrid delivery — 60% in-person, 40% online — of CSU’s College of Business Executive MBA provides busy working professionals the flexibility of online classes, plus the benefits of meeting and networking with peers in downtown Denver, every other Saturday. The online classes present course materials conveniently so you can maintain and balance multiple commitments. Our Executive MBAs graduate with credentials and the confidence to inspire teams and thrive in leadership roles across industry and around the world.

Team-Based Learning

You’ll join 25 peers from diverse industries and backgrounds to learn how to face the complexities of leadership, growth, human capital, information management, and many other facets of today's fast-paced business world. The Executive MBA classes in downtown Denver present valuable opportunities to have insightful and frank discussions among peers and with world-class faculty. The AACSB accredited curriculum is tailored specifically to prompt important discussions that will broaden and develop your leadership skills and show how to achieve greater organizational impact.

After a few courses, your small cohort will begin to feel like a close-knit leadership team of peers and mentors. The Saturday sessions will immerse you in current topics of Leadership and Teams, Business Economics for the World Market, International Business, Supply Chain Management, Managing Human Capital, Marketing Strategy and Planning, plus powerful electives which lean into additional areas of expertise.

In addition to the online and downtown Denver classes, you’ll participate in three on-campus residencies in Fort Collins and one international residency. Past countries include Croatia, Greece, Chile, China, and India.

Benefits of the Denver Executive MBA Experience

James Iacino, CEO, Seattle Fish Company

“Collaborate to graduate – that really is what it’s all about. You have your teammates that you can still communicate with throughout the week. It is manageable, and it is doable, and there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.”

Will Mckamie, Information Technology Manager, LT Trust

“It was something I definitely felt I needed to move up in my company… I really wanted the cohort, then you’re with the same people for two years. I really loved that idea, so I didn’t want the all online program. The flexibility of this program was great.”

- Megan Manning, Investment Analyst, Monticello Associates
