An Executive MBA program is a 15 to 24 month course especially designed for working professionals having business/managerial experience. Generally, students work at full-time jobs and take their lectures on weekends. Naturally, the program is fast-paced (covering the same material as an MBA program) with fewer electives and assignments.
An Executive MBA program is an expert level MBA course designed in a way to boost the leadership, managerial, and critical thinking skills of working professionals. Unlike an MBA program where you will bear the course fee yourself, an Executive MBA program is in most cases funded by employers (if not entirely, then a significant portion of it). This is because the employers will gradually benefit from the skills their employees will acquire from the Executive MBA program.
