Top-Notch Faculty

WashU believes great teaching and great scholarship go hand in hand. “The Executive MBA program attracts the best of the best faculty members,” students and alumni will tell you.

“EMBA professors bring new thinking and business practices into the classroom,” says Stuart Bunderson, associate dean and director of executive programs and the George and Carol Bauer Professor of Organizational Ethics and Governance. “Their intellectual capital becomes your competitive edge.”

Learn from professors who make subject matter relatable.

Executive MBA professors make subject matter relatable through class discussions, case studies, simulations, applied-learning projects, and one-on-one conversations. Learning by doing is a priority. EMBA professors care about your success. They talk through concepts with you, get to know you better outside the classroom, make themselves accessible beyond class weekends, and have even been known to invest in student startups.

Benefit from access to some of the world’s most prolific researchers.

WashU faculty members are known for their research productivity, with work that is widely published and cited in influential academic journals. From them, you’ll acquire business models and trends ahead of the marketplace — a tremendous advantage for you and your organization.
