The MBA for Executives Extended Classroom allows a small number of participants to join class from home, office, or while on a business trip on occasion. Leveraging state-of-the-art classroom technology in Evans Hall, this innovation helps students to inject some flexibility into their rigorous class weekend schedule to manage the travel demands placed upon them, their families, and employers.
Program participants using the Extended Classroom can see and hear everything that is going on in the classroom. They can raise their hand and contribute to class discussions as if they were sitting in the room. Students on campus can see their peers on dedicated screens, as can of course the professor. To maintain the quality and rigor of the Yale MBA for Executives program, students cannot use the Extended Classroom on two consecutive class weekends and the number of Extended Classroom spots per weekend is limited.

“I have really appreciated the Extended Classroom feature of the Yale EMBA program. Balancing family, work, friends and school can be difficult but being able to access professors and classmates remotely is a real game changer. I’ve used Extended Classroom in order to attend my nephew’s first birthday party, my best friend’s wedding and even to take care of a sick husband. Being able to be present in Atlanta with my loved ones and also in New Haven with my cohort has been the best gift.”
