Organizational Support

Your employer must indicate its willingness to give you sufficient time to complete our EMBA class schedule. In addition to time off, many candidates receive some form of financial support from their employers; however, this is not required.

English-Language Proficiency

English is the language of the Katz Executive MBA Worldwide program, even in our locations abroad. Citizens of a country where English is not the official language must present an official score from the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language Testing system). However, individuals who earned a bachelor's or higher degree from a regionally accredited institution in an English-speaking country are exempt.

For the TOEFL exam, a score of 100 or higher is desired. No score below 80 will be accepted. On the IELTS, a score of seven or higher is desired. No score below 6.5 will be accepted. Applicants who fail to meet these requirements must verify their English-language proficiency by sitting for an additional test. You must send your TOEFL or IELTS scores directly to us. The TOEFL code is 2927-02.
