As part of the Applied Innovation course in the EMBA program, you will first learn problem framing, specifically to navigate the design and innovation process by applying different modes of thinking in order to find, frame, reframe and solve difficult business problems. Later in the course, you will team up with classmates to apply these tools to address an actual company challenge or global issue, such as providing safe drinking water. Faculty will coach and mentor you on working effectively in cross-disciplinary teams, on the content area of the project, and on experimenting with alternative solutions.
In addition to regular courses and week-long electives on the Berkeley-Haas campus, the executive MBA program features a select set of off-site learning modules. Locations will include Silicon Valley and Washington D.C. These learning modules are tailored to take advantage of their local knowledge, giving you a diverse set of experiences and deeper knowledge into various business ecosystems, such as Silicon Valley's technology industry and Washington D.C.'s international business and public policy environment.
