Program Terms & Residencies

The Global Executive MBA program leverages Fuqua's portfolio of regions to the fullest and consists of a 16-month curriculum divided into 5 mandatory terms:

  • 2 terms include a residency on Duke's main campus in Durham, NC, USA
  • 3 terms include a residency in select regions around the world, which may include:
    • Africa
    • Asia
    • Europe
    • Latin America
    • Middle East

Residencies are rigorous and concentrated, so you should plan to completely step away from your job while you're in residency. Before and after each residency is a more flexible distance-learning period. During distance learning periods, you will continue your coursework through virtual classroom sessions, team projects, individual assignments, and exams.

You have the option of studying for a 6th term to complete a concentration in:

  • Energy and Environment
  • Entrepreneurship and Innovation
