High-Touch, High-Caliber Learning Environment

WashU Olin promotes a highly relational culture. EMBA students describe WashU’s learning environment as “high touch” and “high caliber.” The atmosphere is collaborative and energizing, fueled by students’ passion for making a broader impact across their organizations. The environment is also a safe haven for professional exploration and experimentation.

Build Relationships That Matter

Simply put, our EMBA program is about people. We believe faculty accessibility, personal attention and a strong cohort system are no less important than quantitative rigor. The size of WashU Olin, our top-notch professors and our highly collaborative culture enable us to deliver on these attributes in remarkable ways.

During the program, you are placed in carefully curated teams of professionals with diverse but complementary backgrounds and skills. Current and former students will tell you these teams become learning laboratories as well as second families.

Connect to a Worldwide Alumni Network

As an EMBA student, you can leverage WashU’s worldwide alumni network that’s 135,000 strong and growing. Our 26,000-member Olin alumni community includes 3,100 EMBA alums. These connections can help you develop a more collaborative approach to leadership, address high-priority business challenges, hire exceptional talent and build your competitive edge.

EMBA graduates are big-picture systems thinkers who improve organizational performance. These leaders serve as connective tissue for enterprises of all types and sizes. They are also caring corporate citizens who promote sustainable growth, community development and philanthropy.

When you join their ranks, you immediately benefit from the power of WashU’s reputation in the marketplace. And you amplify that reputation in turn through your own sharpened work ethic, foresight, accountability and ability to inspire the people around you.

Return on Investment

Your WashU EMBA experience provides an immediate and ongoing ROI. Many benefits are quantifiable: more responsibility, a higher salary, and increased sales and profitability.

Other takeaways are immeasurable: a Values Based, Data Driven™ approach to decision-making, an appreciation for the global nature of business and an entrepreneurial spirit. In the program, you engage in two forms of coaching—professional and career—and create a leadership development plan and a leader purpose statement.

Additionally, our EMBAs have lifelong access to career services tailored to the needs of working professionals.
