[photopress:steve_haberman_at_CASS.jpg,full,alignright]It is worth making quite clear the difference between the MBA and the EMBA degree.
The EMBA is for executives who have, effectively, already proved themselves in business. Now they want to improve their business skills.
MBA students, on the other hand, typically come straight to university from other places of education and have no real experience of business.
Thus if you think of EMBA as standing for Experienced MBA you get the picture more clearly. Typically it is a part-time course and typically it extends over two years although there are exceptions to the rule.
An example. The Cass Executive MBA China is a two year, part-time program for executives based in China and the surrounding regions. It has been developed in association with the Bank of China and the Shanghai University of Finance and Economics and is based on Cass Business School’s Executive MBA program which is international.
This course provides successful students with anExecutive MBA which is based on Cass Business School’s Executive MBA delivered in London. It is designed to further develop multi-skilled professionals who are comfortable working in an international business environment.
Now it is clear. MBA for students who have not been in business and EMBA for executives who already know some of the ropes.
