Washington - Olin to Offer a Joint EMBA Program in India

EMBA to be offered through a partnership with Indian Institute of Technology Bombay

Washington University in St Louis

Washington University in St. Louis' Olin School of Business has announced that it has partnered with the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT - Bombay) to launch an EMBA program in India.

The program will be based in Mumbai and will take 18 months to complete. During that time, students will attend classes four days per month, over one long weekend. The program also includes three residency sessions: an opening session in Mumbai, a mid-program residency in another location, and a two-week capstone in St. Louis. The EMBA program is delivered entirely in English.

The EMBA's curriculum will cover a range of topics, from modules in broad core business subjects like "Managerial Economics," to those focused on leadership, such as "Managing Power and Influence in Organizations."

The EMBA program is modeled after another joint EMBA program that Olin offers with China's Fudan University. In that program, students attend classes in Shanghai and also have a capstone course in St. Louis. The Olin - Fudan EMBA is currently ranked in the Financial Times' Executive MBA ranking.

The new international business degree partnership is the second that WUSTL - Olin has announced this year. In January, the school announced that it was partnering with South Korea's Yonsei School of Business to offer a joint MBA/Master of Science in Finance. 

The Olin - IIT Bombay EMBA program is set to launch in 2015. Applications for the 2015 intake will open this fall; to apply, candidates must have at least seven years of work experience, including five years of managerial experience. However, the program brochure notes that applicants should expect that the program's first cohort will be in line with that of the Olin - Fudan program, where participants generally have around fifteen years of professional experience.
