Grounded in Core MBA Fundamentals


WashU Olin’s Flex MBA degree program delivers the full rigor of a traditional MBA with the necessary flexibility for working professionals. Each semester, you can choose to take classes online or on campus. With both formats, you have live class sessions at set times and additional content to review outside of class. Whether on campus or online, you’re taught by the same professors as in our Full-Time MBA program.

*Finish in as little as two years or choose to decelerate earning your degree.

 

Electives on Contemporary Topics


As you start the program and your core classes, you can also dive into elective courses that interest you. Each semester, we offer a wide variety of 1.5-hour elective courses on contemporary topics like AI, healthcare, analytics and entrepreneurship. These courses are immersive and experiential, including weeklong intensives, weekend courses and global travel courses. And they’re an excellent way to study of-the-moment topics and build your degree your way.

A Network of Professionals


However you choose to pursue your degree—on campus or online—you develop close relationships with your professors and peers. An important part of your Flex MBA experience is getting to know your classmates and adding them to your professional network. That happens as you collaborate closely on classwork, discuss cases and work on group projects. Your professors, all easily accessible, and experts who speak in class also expand your network.
