EMBA Academic Calendar

The Wharton Executive MBA is an intensive two-year, residential program that meets on campus every other weekend, year round. Our living-and-learning environment — with classrooms, study rooms, dining, hotel rooms, and group meeting spaces — allows you to focus on your studies and gives you the time you need to build important relationships with fellow students. In addition to class weekends every other Friday and Saturday, you will experience several extended sessions and a 1-week Global Experience. You will spend approximately 15-25 hours of study outside of class each week.
