RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN announces application procedures for the September 
2018 Distance Learning Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) 
program.

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 targets middle to senior grade active-duty officers, lieutenant 
commander (select) and above (lieutenant by waiver).  Classes are delivered 
via online technologies with synchronous interaction between faculty and 
students.

3.  The EMBA program begins with a required one-week Temporary Additional 
Duty (TAD) in-residence session at NPS in Monterey, CA.
The week of 10-14 September 2018 includes an orientation and a graduate level 
course on management of teams.  A second week of required TAD in-residence 
instruction will be scheduled during the second year of the EMBA program.  
Other than these two visits to NPS Monterey, students complete all 
instruction from their home locations.  A block of rooms will be reserved in 
Monterey, CA for attendees during orientation.  All efforts will be made to 
minimize TAD costs.

4.  The parent command of the student will provide official travel orders and 
funding for TAD travel.  If command funding is not available, students may 
fund their own travel and utilize no-cost TAD orders from their commands.

5.  Active duty Naval officers accepted into the EMBA program are integrated 
into cohorts with civilian students.  Typically, a cohort is comprised of 
about 25 students from which student teams are formed.  Cohorts take all 
classes together during the 24 months of instruction.  Students will receive 
instruction via online, synchronous educational software, with faculty 
teaching every session in real time, 1 day per week for approximately 6 to 7 
hours per day during regular continental United States duty hours.
Admission to the EMBA program is available to applicants in any geographic 
location, regardless of the number of applicants in a location.  Since 
courses are delivered via online learning technologies, students must have 
access to a computer with high- speed internet and audio-video capabilities 
suitable for web-enabled interactions with instructors and students.  A 
computer camera or webcam is required.

6.  Eligibility requirements include an undergraduate degree from a 
regionally accredited 4 year college or university, 2.6 grade point average 
or higher on a 4 point scale, and at least one college-level mathematics 
course.  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 September 2020.  The Graduate 
Management Admission Test is not required.

7.  Graduates will be awarded an EMBA degree from NPS and the Navy 
subspecialty code 3100P, Financial Management-Defense Focus.
Graduates will also earn Defense Acquisition University Level II 
equivalencies for all program management functional equivalencies.
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 3 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.

8.  Officers interested in the EMBA program can visit the NPS EMBA home page 
at www.nps.edu/emba for detailed eligibility and application process 
information.  Deadline for the application process is no later than 15 June 
2018.  Online instruction begins
26 September 2018.

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

10.  This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or
31 December 2018, whichever occurs first.
