RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces application procedures for the March 2017 
distance learning Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) program.  
The program will be taught in the fleet concentration areas (Norfolk, 
Washington D.C., and San Diego) and other eligible sites.

2.  The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) defense-focused EMBA is a 24-month, 
fully-funded, part-time graduate program focused on resource management.  The 
program prepares middle to senior grade active-duty officers, lieutenant 
commander (select) and above, whose career paths do not support residence 
graduate education.

3.  The program begins with a one-week temporary additional duty
(TAD) resident program at the NPS campus in Monterey, CA.  Official travel 
orders and funding for TAD travel will be provided by the student's parent 
command.  If command funding is not available, students may fund their own 
travel and utilize no-cost TAD orders from their command.  During resident 
week, students will take a two- credit hour course in managing teams.  
Additionally, students will interact with the faculty who will be teaching 
throughout the program and master the skills required to learn via distance 
learning methods.  The NPS program resident week is scheduled for
13-17 February 2017.  A block of rooms has been reserved at Navy Lodge, 
Monterey, CA for attendees.  Transportation by bus will be provided to and 
from the Navy Lodge for daily classes on the NPS campus to minimize TAD 
costs.

4.  NPS faculty use video teleconferencing (VTC), internet, and other 
distance learning modes to teach the follow-on courses.
Students meet in VTC-capable classrooms once a week during normal duty hours 
for six to seven hours of instruction, taking two classes per quarter for 
eight quarters.  Students enter the EMBA program as a cohort and will take 
all courses together as a learning team (minimum five personnel).  VTC 
instruction will begin during the week of 3 April 2017.

5.  Eligibility requirements include an undergraduate degree from a 
regionally accredited four-year college or university, academic profile code 
of 245 (2.6 grade point average or higher on a 4 point
scale) and 2 pre-calculus courses with a grade of B or better.  A commanding 
officer endorsement letter is required to participate in the program.  
Department head or similar mid-level management experience and strong 
potential for promotion are preferred.
Participants must have a projected rotation date no earlier than March 2019.  
The Graduate Management Admission Test is not required.

6.  Graduates will be awarded an EMBA degree from NPS and the Navy 
subspecialty code 3100P, Financial Management - Defense Focus.  As directed 
by reference (a), officers participating in this program must agree to remain 
on active duty following completion of graduate studies for a period of three 
years.  This obligation is discharged concurrently with any other service 
obligation already incurred.
This agreement does not obligate the Navy to retain the officer on active 
duty.

7.  Officers interested in the EMBA program can visit the NPS EMBA home page 
for detailed eligibility and application process information.  Deadline for 
the application process is no later than
4 December 2016.  The EMBA program homepage can be found at www.nps.edu/emba.

8.  Point of contact is the NPS EMBA program office and they can be reached 
at (831) 656-2562/DSN 756, fax at (831)656-3630/DSN 756, or via e-mail at 
emba(at)nps.edu.  .

9.  This message will remain in effect until superseded or
30 June 2017, whichever occurs first.
