Where can I get the EMP Class of 2026 application? The application for the EMP Class of 2026 will open 1 November 2023. Join the Executive Education interest list to be the first to know when applications are available for future classes. 

What’s included in the application? The online application includes the data form, how to pay your US$2000 deposit and instructions to upload your personal statement & video.

What is the cost of the EMP? Year 1 is US$7,000 per member, which includes the $2000 deposit and $5,000 registration fee. Year 2 is US$4,000 (which includes US$1000 of your deposit). Year 3 is US$4,000 (which includes US$1000 of your deposit). *Please note that this is based on 2023 pricing. The pricing is subject to change year by year. 

In order for your application to be considered complete, you must pay a US$2,000 deposit. To check if you have credit card information in your profile, or to update existing credit card information, log in to EO’s secure site, the EO Hub. If you submit your application but do not pay the deposit, your application will be incomplete and you will not be considered for the programme. Your deposit is non-refundable for accepted applicants.

If you are accepted into the programme – regardless of whether you are able to attend or not – the US$2000 deposit is non-refundable. If you are not accepted into the programme, the US$2000 deposit will be refunded.

I was accepted! Now what?

When is my Year 1 registration fee due? In order to secure your space in the EMP, the Year 1 registration fee is due by 19 February 2024. Read more about the payment process here.

Are airport transfers provided? Airport transfers are not provided and are at your own cost. Taxis or Ubers are recommended. Transportation during programme days is provided and is offered only at the times noted on the agenda.

When should I plan to arrive at the Endicott House? If you are assigned to stay at the Endicott House, you should plan to arrive no later than 4:45 p.m. EST on the first day of your class. This will enable you to check into your room, receive your registration materials and attend the cocktail reception (5 p.m.) and dinner (6 p.m.) before the first session starts that evening (7 p.m.).

If you are assigned to stay at the offsite hotel and you plan to attend the cocktail reception and dinner, you should try to arrive at the hotel by 4 p.m. There will be one shuttle run from the hotel to the Endicott House on opening day (check the agenda for details); if you miss the shuttle, the hotel can call a taxi for you at your own cost.

On the remaining days of the programme, twice-daily shuttle service will be provided between the hotel and the Endicott House (once in the morning; once when class is dismissed in the evening). Again, if you miss the shuttle, the Endicott House can call a taxi for you at your own cost.

The schedule is tight and the programme will start on time every day. If being on time might be a challenge for you, consider renting a car to travel between the hotel and the Endicott House. Parking is available on-site at both locations, however associated fees are at your own cost and spaces are limited.

What if I need to arrive earlier than Wednesday and/or stay later than Sunday? Your programme fees cover your accommodations from Wednesday night through Sunday morning only. If your travel schedule cannot fit between these days, you may contact either the Endicott House or the offsite hotel to secure lodging. You can also follow this link to view other accommodation options in/around Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Endicott House
80 Haven Street
Dedham, MA 02026
T: +1.781.326.5151
F: +1.781.326.8702

Lodging outside of the programme dates will carry an additional cost payable directly to either the Endicott House or the offsite hotel, depending on where you are staying. The respective cancellation policies of these venues apply.

What if I have special dietary needs? The dining facility at the Endicott House can accommodate most requests. If you are accepted into the programme, be sure to complete the dietary restrictions question during your event registration. We will do our best to meet your needs.

Attendance Details

What if I am accepted to the Class of 2026 but cannot attend? If you are accepted into the EMP and cannot attend the Year 1 meeting, you are no longer eligible to continue with the programme. You must re-apply and be accepted to the EMP once again in order to participate in a future class. The US$2000 deposit submitted with the application is non-refundable for all accepted applicants.

What happens if I cannot attend my Year 2 or Year 3 class? The EMP is a three-year commitment and we want to see all participants graduate from the programme with the class into which they were originally accepted. More than half of the applicants to the EMP are not accepted.  Although the program registration fees are charged on an annual basis (vs. 100% up front) and there is no contractual agreement, you are expected to return to the program each year, more committed than the previous year.

If you completed your Year 1 meeting and absolutely cannot attend Year 2 (or if you completed Year 2 but cannot attend Year 3), we will make every effort to defer your participation until the next year. This option is on a space-available basis, and must be approved by EO and the class facilitator. Absolutely no guarantees will be made.

If you register/pay for Year 2 or Year 3 but later find you cannot attend, please see the Year 2/Year 3 cancellation/refund schedule here.
