All students are required to attend and fully participate in the off-site weekend academic retreat, which occurs at the end of your core classes and the beginning of your electives. MPAR (previously WE Innovate) utilizes key concepts from Fundamentals of Design Thinking. The MPAR weekend is usually held in mid January, during the winter break of the second year in the program, Friday through Sunday. The course will appear as a 1 unit course during the 2nd Spring semester.

MPAR is an important degree requirement and unique to the EWMBA program. Failure to attend or fully-participate in MPAR can result in a delay in your graduation.
