DON Civilian

DON Civilian (Curriculum 807)

The EMBA program is a 24-month, part-time, non-resident distance-learning program. Students attend class during normal duty hours one day a week for 6-7 hours in their local duty area. The primary course delivery mode is two-way video and audio video teleconferencing. NPS faculty also use the Internet for course management and, at times, instruction. This mode of instruction "brings classes to the students," allowing DON civilians to stay in their shore duty billet and support the command mission. Because classes meet during work hours on Navy time, students must have the full support of their Commanding Officer to be admitted into the program.

Students enter the program as a "cohort," taking all classes together and completing the program as a group. All students are required to attend a one-week orientation session at NPS the week prior to the first quarter of classes. A reading package, which is the required reading for the week at NPS, will be sent to all students prior to their travel. During that one-week orientation, students also take a two-credit course in "Managing Teams." Following this trip to Monterey, students return to their parent commands and all classes are delivered to the cohort group there. At least once each quarter NPS faculty meet with students face-to-face.
