A Strong Academic Foundation

An EMBA designed for professional impact

We understand that leadership is individualized. All kinds of people can become transformative leaders by knowing who they are and how best to employ their leadership style. It’s why leadership development is at the heart of our EMBA program, and includes leadership assessments, executive leadership coaching and leadership coursework throughout the program. Whatever your leadership style, you’ll develop a values-based, data-driven approach to decision-making, always considering the impact of the decisions you make on your organization and the world around you.

Our model of leadership effectiveness.

We believe effective leaders must have values-based and data-driven competencies. Unlike most leadership models that talk mainly about driving results and leading people, in our model we develop principled leaders who are clear about their values and purpose while also understanding the importance of analytics and paying attention to what the data says.

Make WashU’s reputation your reputation.

Our chancellor likes to say that we are more than Washington University in St. Louis, we are also Washington University for St. Louis. We’re very proud to be an important part of the St. Louis community, helping to address community challenges and bring considerable financial resources to the region.

As an EMBA student, you’ll be part of the WashU network, recognized worldwide for our exacting standards and our desire to excel through accomplishments in our home community as well as the nation and the world. Our EMBA program is distinctly WashU in its approach, from its insistence that great teaching and great scholarship go hand in hand to its focus on meaningful, measurable results for all of our endeavors.

Olin Business School is accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Less than 5 percent of the world’s business schools have earned the distinction.
