Executive Master of Accounting (EMAC) Program Calendar

While the flexibility of synchronous and asynchronous learning allows you to learn at your own convenience, it is important to note that there are still structured elements to keep you on track. Each week, there are due dates for assignments to ensure that you progress through each course and meet the learning objectives within a reasonable timeframe. Whether you choose to attend the lectures synchronously or view them asynchronously, the choice is yours, ensuring that your learning experience aligns with your individual schedule and preferences.
