Inspiring Leaders

Our Executive MBA focuses on leadership and impact.

What I got out of it is a huge reflection of my capabilities, my characteristics, my personal integrity and who I was as a person and a leader.

About Our EMBA Program

Our EMBA program is designed for high-achieving leaders. Classes meet once a month on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. In addition, most students spend 10 to 15 hours reading cases and preparing for class. And many student teams get together once a week. All the while, you’re creating a network of accomplished classmates, top-notch faculty, engaged WashU alumni and diverse business leaders.



Leadership Coaching

Individualized leadership development is at the heart of our program. To hone your leadership skills, assessments, executive leadership coaching and related coursework are integrated into your EMBA experience. You take part in 10 hours of coaching, some even after you’ve earned your degree.
