RMKS/1. This NAVADMIN announces application procedures for the September 2013 distance learning
Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) program. The program will be taught in the
Norfolk, Mayport, and San Diego fleet concentration areas, as well as Pensacola, Patuxent River,
Lemoore, Corpus Christi, Jacksonville, Washington Navy Yard, Bangor, Hawaii and other satellite sites.
2. The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) defense-focused EMBA is a 24-month, Navy-funded, part-time
graduate program focused on resource management. The program prepares middle to senior grade
active duty officers (O4 (select), O4, and O5), whose career paths preclude in-resident NPS graduate
programs, for positions requiring resource management expertise.
3. The program begins with a one-week Temporary Additional Duty resident program at the NPS
campus in Monterey, CA. Official travel orders and funding for temporary duty travel will be provided
by the student's parent command. During the resident week, students will take a two-credit hour
course in managing teams. Additionally, students will interact with the faculty who will be teaching
throughout the program and master the skills required to learn via distance learning methods. The NPS
program is scheduled for the week of 19-23 August 2013. A block of rooms has been reserved at the
Navy Lodge, Monterey for all attendees. Optionally, the NPS bachelor officer quarters on campus may
be utilized on a space available basis. Bus transportation will be provided to and from the Navy Lodge
for daily classes on the NPS campus to minimize costs.
4. NPS faculty will use video teleconferencing (VTC), internet, and other distance learning modes to
teach the follow-on courses. Students meet in VTC-capable classrooms once a week during normal duty
hours for 6 to 7 hours of instruction, taking two classes per quarter for 8 quarters. Students enter the
EMBA program as a cohort and will take all courses together as a learning team. All students must
recognize that attending classes with their respective cohort is mandatory to complete the degree
requirements. VTC instruction will begin during the week of 30 September 2013. Class schedules will be
posted on the EMBA web site when confirmed.
5. Eligibility requirements include an undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited four-year
college or university, academic profile code of 245 (2.6 GPA or higher on a 4-point scale and two or
more pre-calculus courses with a grade average of B or better; official transcripts must be forwarded to
the Director of Admissions for evaluation), department head or similar mid-level management
experience, strong potential for promotion, and command endorsement. The Graduate Management
Admission Test is not required. Individuals desiring to participate in the program must have projected
rotation dates that allow them to complete the full 24-month program at their selected
location (NLT September 2015). Graduates will be awarded an EMBA degree from NPS and the Navy
subspecialty code 3100P, Resource Management - Defense Focus. Graduates are expected to serve in
at least one financial management subspecialty coded billet as a follow-on assignment.
6. Per ref (a), officers participating in this program must agree to remain on active duty following
completion of graduate studies for a period of three years. This obligation is discharged concurrently
with any other service obligation already incurred. This agreement does not obligate the Navy to retain
the officer on active duty.
7. The application deadline for the September cohort is 21 June 2013. Submit applications, by following
all of the steps (contact detailer, complete online application, send official transcripts, prepare
documents, and transmit) explained in the application process provided on the EMBA web site,
