UConn’s popular Executive MBA program is launching a ‘HomeLink’ option this fall that will enable students to participate in some live classes from their homes and require in-person attendance one weekend every other month.

“Our Executive MBA program is exactly what many rising leaders are seeking, not only because of the rigor of the program but also the weekend course schedule that accommodates demanding work schedules,” said Director Michael Bozzi. “We recognize that some prospective students want to pursue their degrees at UConn, but aren’t always able to commit to program because of they don’t live in Greater Hartford.”

“We believe a more flexible course option will appeal to potential graduate students in southern New York, Massachusetts, in fact much of New England,” he said. “Our typical EMBA student is in his or her early 30s and those with young families may find travel challenging. We don’t want a few hundred miles to separate someone from a great education.”

Using video and educational technology, HomeLink students will be able to fully participate during live sessions, enabling them to build strong relationships with their peers and professors. They will be required to attend in-person classes once every two months for full days on Friday and Saturday. Classmates who prefer to attend all the classes in person at the Hartford campus are welcome to do so.
