Is a part-time MBA worth it?

Our graduates think so. Almost half of our PMBA alums are executives, VPs or in C-suite positions. You build your professional network, expand your career opportunities and gain leadership skills that you can apply to every project and position you take on for the rest of your career.

Flexibility is built in

Class engagement and participation are a signature of the WashU Olin education experience. And so is flexibility. We understand that professional students need to balance work, life and studies. That’s why we offer remote participation for an entire semester with very few course exclusions. You can access course recordings up to three times a semester due to issues like business travel or family needs.
