The students enrolled in the Weatherhead’s Executive MBA (EMBA) program are working professionals who want to be challenged to new heights in leadership—regardless of discipline. Our cohorts represent individuals from diverse backgrounds, industries and organizations, all of whom wish to make a bigger impact in their careers.
