Program Guide
Executive MBA

The executive MBA (or EMBA) is an MBA program aimed at experienced and senior professionals who want to continue to work full time while pursuing a degree. A complete ranking of the best EMBA programs around the world can be seen in the QS EMBA Rankings 2019.

This means that everything that you learn in an executive MBA program can be tried out in the workplace almost instantaneously. However, the average work experience of participants in an EMBA cohort will set it apart from a full-time MBA program.

The level of expertise and industry knowledge found among a good EMBA cohort is one of its most important qualities, such is the emphasis on peer-to-peer learning and drawing from the experiences of participants.

These clear distinctions aside, the curriculum of an EMBA program will resemble that of a full-time MBA in much of its subject areas and content.
