Faculty at the ‘Sweet Spot’ of Executive Education

EMBA students and alumni will tell you “Washington University brings the best of the best to the Executive MBA faculty.” EMBA professors hit the “sweet spot” of executive education, says Todd Zenger, Robert and Barbara Frick Professor of Business Strategy. They’re all tenured or full-time faculty members well respected for their scholarship and frontline management expertise.

Making subject matter accessible

Above all, Executive MBA professors are exceptional teachers who make subject matter accessible – through class discussions, case studies, simulations, applied-learning projects, and one-on-one conversations.

Among the world’s most-prolific researchers

They also are known for their research productivity, with work that is widely published and cited in influential academic journals. EMBA professors bring their research into the classroom. That means you acquire new business thinking, practices, and trends ahead of the marketplace – a competitive advantage for you and your organization.
