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
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.
