MBA or EMBA – which is right for you?

Where you are in your career is the key to whether an Executive MBA or full-time MBA suits your needs. If you are a high-potential manager at an early stage of your career and want an MBA to leverage career change or advancement, a full-time Master Business Administration program will best suit your needs.

An EMBA is for more experienced professionals with at least 10 years of solid business experience. It also requires company support as you combine study with your work. If you have substantial business experience and want to study without leaving your job, then the best degree for you is an Executive Master Business Administration.
