Prior to the start of the Executive MBA program, admitted students have the opportunity to attend a summer Math Camp at no charge. Coupled with the preparation required to do well on the GMAT exam during the admissions process, this camp has been proven successful in helping students deal effectively with our highly quantitative and analytical curriculum.
Math Camp is comprised of four classes, held on four consecutive Saturdays, starting in July. About two-thirds of incoming students participate, some required to attend based on their GMAT scores. Whether required or not, most students choose to participate to ensure that they are fully prepared to keep pace with the speed and analytical rigor of the Executive MBA program.
While most of the math concepts used in the Executive MBA curriculum are algebraic in nature, students must also have a general understanding of calculus. As a result, Math Camp study areas include algebra and calculus (weeks one and two) and statistics (weeks three and four).
Many Executive MBA students tell us that camp also helps them adjust to being back in the classroom. In addition to getting to know their classmates, camp participants are able to refresh their working knowledge of business calculators and brush up on study habits and test-taking skills.
