Wharton delivers our undiluted MBA curriculum to working professionals through our executive MBA program in Philadelphia and San Francisco. Wharton emphasizes an intensive core in general management and an unmatched selection of electives in a residential every-other-weekend format tailored for working professionals

About

This program is designed for people who have already made significant progress in their careers. Specific majors are not typically necessary as these concentrations by the full-time students are generally viewed as a way for business students to prepare themselves for entry-level positions. Instead, the program’s mission is to offer those already in management positions the coursework and shared experience to enter upper-level management and leadership ranks. The training is therefore geared more toward understanding broad management skills, though students may use second-year electives to build depth in particular fields. That said, some of the more general majors, such as finance, management, and marketing, can be earned by executive students as a result of pursuing their area of interest.
