Make Business Better: Executive MBA

As a driven, senior professional, you’re ready to take your career to the next level and make a broader impact. Washington University’s Executive MBA will help you do just that.

In our EMBA program, you’ll broaden your ability to balance data and theory with principle and outcomes. You’ll expand your global fluency and apply what you learn in real-time. And you’ll lead, knowing not only which problems require attention, but also which solutions will do the most good.

Our Curriculum, Your Schedule

Focus on learning, not logistics in a program designed for individuals like you — who balance long work hours, frequent travel, active lifestyles, and family commitments. WashU’s 20-month Executive MBA program is designed for accomplished professionals positioned to become transformational leaders. We have campuses in St. Louis, Shanghai, and Mumbai, where classes meet once a month on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Time Commitment

In addition to the days you spend in class, most EMBA students spend 10 to 15 hours each week completing course assignments. Much of your out-of-class time is spent reading cases and preparing for class. Many student teams also meet once a week.

Open Doors, Foster Relationships

While in the program, you’ll build a powerful network of accomplished classmates, top-notch faculty, engaged WashU alumni, and diverse business leaders. You’ll also gain an appreciation for the value of relationships in a customer-centric world.
