dc.description.abstract The world is experiencing an information explosion of unprecedented proportions. Not only is the volume of new information large, but it is also growing exponentially. Rapid changes in many fields are making basic knowledge and skills obsolete. st In the technological world of the 21 century, the meaning of the phrase "to know" means more than simply having information stored in one's memory; it means having access to information and knowing how to use it. The challenge for education is to design technologies for learning that draw both from knowledge about human cognition and from practical application of how technology can facilitate complex tasks in,the workplace. "Like training wheels," computers enable learners to do more advanced activities, and engage in more advanced thinking and problem-solving than they could without such help. In this rapidly transforming world, where employment requirements and fundamental literacy expectations are quickly changing, the EMBA education must also change to meet these demands. The essence of the EMBA education has always been to enhance the experience level of senior level professionals who aim to get to higher level positions in their career, and to foster competencies that will permit these professional to have a stronger contribution into the well off of their organizations. To that end, Information technology must become an integral part of the general education curriculum so students are prepared to meet future technology challenges. Different studies were done on the EMBA program worldwide, a certain research was conducted in the Lebanese American University (LAU) and American University of Beirut (AUB) on MBN EMBA students and instructors. This study elaborates the concept of EMBA and its iruportance in addition to the environment needed for an EMBA classroom in the neW millennium where a high level of interaction will take place and high technological state will be implemented. en_US
