MBA vs Executive MBA
While, an MBA has been a popular choice of programme for a number of aspiring students, many are essentially unaware of what an Executive MBA programme [or EMBA] includes. Let us take a look at both programmes and help debunk any myths that you might have heard about the latter.
MBA is targeted at young professionals who want to acquire skills that focus on a multitude of areas fit for executive-level managers. A full-time MBA course typically entails accounting, marketing, finance and project management and is a 2-year programme. Students, who are at an early stage in their career and aspiring to broaden their perspectives, take up general management to make a shift in their professional direction. These high-performing individuals can later delve deeper into specialized areas through electives and majors, which can open doors to global career opportunities.
Despite EMBA being a smart choice for students with a full-time career, many of these professionals tend to disregard the prospects involved with the course. It is hardly a ‘watered-down’ version as people tend to believe quite often.
EMBA is tailor-made for mid-career professionals who are at a more advanced stage as compared to MBA pursuers. The curriculum is quite similar to an MBA programme. However, more emphasis is placed on leadership development. Those looking to fine-tune their leadership skills and aspire to go on to senior management roles thereafter, without a major shift in their professional direction are best suited for this course.
An EMBA is an investment you can rely on that pays for itself within a few months. EMBA aspirants can expect to earn a degree within the same time-frame as an MBA student due to specialized study and no electives. If you’re lucky, some organizations offer incentives to take up courses and degrees that may prove valuable to their business. An EMBA will not only save your time, but also money in the long run.
