About our EMBA program

For 40 years, our EMBA program has educated high-achieving leaders. Classes meet once a month on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. In addition to class days, most students spend 10 to 15 hours each week completing assignments. Much of your out-of-class time is spent reading cases and preparing for class. And many student teams get together once a week. All the while, you’ll create a network of accomplished classmates, top-notch faculty, engaged WashU alumni and diverse business leaders.
