The Executive MBA (Executive Masters of Business Administration) is an increasingly popular option for business professionals who want to improve their skills and add a degree to their resume.
The Executive MBA is also an increasingly popular option for business schools who realize that offering such a program can bring a great deal of income, prestige and attention to their school.
With typical programs fees ranging from $20,000 – $100,000 (and perhaps even higher depending on the specific program and the demand) it’s not a cheap option.
The idea behind the Executive MBA is to provide experienced professionals the opportunity to gain a professional university degree in business without having to quit their job.
In this regard an Executive MBA can provide you with flexibility to continue your education without too much disruption in your professional and private lives.
In addition to looking good on your resume, an Executive MBA can help you gain important insight into current and future trends in the business world, expose you to new contacts who might be relevant to your career and also help you improve upon existing skills or learn new ones that you can apply in your current position.
Increasingly, there are options available for busy, working professionals who want to attain a certain educational level but don’t have the time to do so with “traditional” classroom-led programs and might not have the ability to quit their job to pursue it.
