The EMPA course schedule is structured in a way intended to support balance in a student’s life despite its rigor. For the typical student, total weekly time in class, travel, homework, and team collaboration requires between fifteen and twenty hours a week. The curriculum is standardized so that students are in the same classes together throughout the program. Courses include organizational behavior, economics, communication, applied decision analysis, statistics, human resources, and ethics.

Each entering class meets on a different night of the week. The schedule for the entering classes of 2019, 2020, and 2021 are listed below:

  • Entering class of 2019 will meet on Tuesday night
  • Entering class of 2020 will meet on Thursday night
  • Entering class of 2021 will meet on Wednesday night

EMPA classes are held fall and winter semesters and spring term for three years. Classes are not held summer term. 

All classes are held at the BYU Salt Lake Center.
