Objective - to propose and test an MBA learning download model, evaluating the influence of autonomy at work, the learning culture and organizational cynicism on the download of what has been learned.

Methodology - A survey was carried out with students in the Brazilian phase of completion and MBA graduates from three business schools. The final sample consisted of 306 participants. To measure the variable transfer, a scale was developed and tested. For the independent variables (work autonomy, learning culture and organizational cynicism) previously validated scales were adopted. The data was drawn through the offer of companies (PLS-by definitionEMS)

The learning outcomes of learning were realized during autonomy at work and organizational cynicism does not explain the results. The model also included five control variables, two of which had statistically significant results, but with effects on the transfer of intelligent control: student age and load.

Contributions - The study contributes to the theory by testing with five transfer dimensions of the study, proving the multidimensionality of the construct. The results can also be revealed to students who learned the MBA in different ways but also did not contribute to their students as organizations.

Keywords - Transfer of Learning; Autonomy at work, Learning Culture; Organizational Cynicism; MBA.
