High Touch, High Caliber Learning Environment

At WashU, collaboration, teamwork, coaching, and mentorship become second nature.

Everyone in a WashU executive education classroom wants to be there — and wants to get the most out of the subject matter. One EMBA alumna says, “I was surprised by how much I loved going back to school.” Once a month, she’d put on jeans and a sweater and head to the Charles F. Knight Executive Education & Conference Center. It was a privilege, she adds, to spend time with such “great, smart people.”

Learn in a collaborative, energizing atmosphere.

WashU 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 organization. The environment is also a safe haven for professional exploration and experimentation.

St. Louis-based courses are held in the Knight Center. They’re often followed by informal networking, special events, or happy hours with classmates and professors in the fourth-floor pub.
