KUSOM opens admissions for EMBA program 2019

Kathmandu University School of Management famously known as KUSOM has announced admissions open for the Executive- MBA (EMBA) programme for the year 2019.

What is EMBA?

The Executive Masters in Business Administration program is catered towards professionals who are working and have an extensive work experience. It is generally assumed that the students who apply for EMBA will already have extensive business knowledge picked up over their career. Executive MBA – EMBA is a Master of Business Administration program that specifically targets corporate executives and managers. The program enables them to study and work towards earning this business degree while continuing to hold their existing full-time jobs.

However, this is not the case in Nepal because there are colleges in Nepal that are providing evening MBA classes as well for students and applicants.

The main difference in EMBA programme is that EMBA requires prior work experience while MBA does not require such work experience.


The KUSOM EMBA program is an intensive two-year course spread over six terms of full-time study. In the first year, students complete three terms, each lasting 14 weeks involving intensive classroom study and practical business projects. In the second year, they complete three terms with options of pursuing a specialization stream in one disciplinary area with choice courses either to develop specialization competency or to develop mastery of one functional/sectoral area and broader range of multifunctional/multidisciplinary competencies to suit career requirements. During the sixth term, students undertake a comprehensive problem-focused experiential project for learning transfer.
