EMBA Schedule & Full Academic Calendar

The Wharton Executive MBA is an intensive two-year program which allows you to earn the full Wharton MBA in a modified, part-time schedule to accommodate your full-time career.  Students in our San Francisco and Philadelphia cohorts attend class sessions in person every other weekend, with several extended sessions in addition to Global Business Week. Students in our Global cohort attend virtual, synchronous class sessions every other weekend with several in-person extended class sessions, including Global Business Week and two required Global Modular Courses. 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. You will spend approximately 15-25 hours of study outside of class each week.
