New E.M.B.A. program meets once a month

A new residential executive master of business administration (E.M.B.A.) degree program is beginning in September at the Olin School of Business.

Classes will meet just once a month from 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on a Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Charles F. Knight Executive Education Center.

The program grants a master of business administration degree in only 18 months.

This E.M.B.A. program is geared to executives with seven or more years of managerial-level experience. The program also includes two one-week on-campus residencies and a strong international component with a required two-week overseas residency and an optional London summer program.

“The new Washington University E.M.B.A. program design reflects the needs of busy managers with significant responsibilities — senior, seasoned executives from a diverse group of industries,” said Doris Drewry, the Olin School’s director of E.M.B.A. admissions. “A Washington University M.B.A. offers experienced executives the kind of rigorous and challenging academic program they expect and outstanding professional and personal development opportunities.”

Executives beginning the program in September will complete their M.B.A. in early 2005. The total program cost, including overnight lodging and meals at the Knight Center, is $84,500.

New courses in the E.M.B.A. program curriculum include a “Senior Executives Forum” and “Leading the Responsible Organization.”
