Continuing Education

The Krannert School hosts a nationally ranked program of executive and part time degree and non degree management training.

The Executive MBA Programs of the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University are integrated programs of advanced study in management for experienced professionals who seek to obtain an AACSB accredited MBA degree while maintaining their full-time job responsibilities. The Krannert School of Management has been in the business of helping executives get their MBAs for almost 25 years and have graduated over 2000 students.

Krannert's part-time Weekend Master of Business Administration Program at Purdue University (Weekend MBA) is an integrated degree-granting program of advanced study in management for working professionals. It offers an innovative alternative to the traditional part-time program and results in a master's degree from one of the world's best MBA schools.The Weekend MBA Program grew from the guiding principles that have consistently placed the Krannert School among the best MBA schools in the United States.

You can enhance your management skills even when you're unable to invest the time required for an MBA degree. Taught by world-class faculty, Krannert's Executive Education Programs (non-degree) feature much of the same content that drives the school's internationally-ranked executive master's degree programs. Best of all, these programs are convenient, accessible, and targeted to suit the continuing education needs of a variety of constituent groups. Moreover, our programs are arranged in series that reflect strategic partnerships of learning and engagement between select Purdue and external centers of expertise--and are designed to help achieve current economic initiatives in Indiana, the Midwest, the nation, and even globally

Experiential Learning Initiative (ELI)

The result is the Krannert School’s Experiential Learning Initiative (ELI), a mutually beneficial program for both students and their client companies.
