2020-2021 Executive MBA Programs: Details, Deadlines & Requirements

EMBA Programs Details, Deadlines & Requirements

Are you looking to accelerate your career growth but continue working full time? Do you have strong leadership experience and want to magnify your impact and hone your business skills?

If so, an Executive MBA (EMBA) may be the right choice to help you get ahead professionally. Whether you want to advance in your current industry, shift roles, or build a business from the ground up, an EMBA will supply you with the tools to do so.

Since EMBAs are designed for working professionals, they typically offer flexible scheduling to accommodate busy lifestyles. Nevertheless, pursuing an executive education is still a large commitment that should be given considerable thought.

While EMBA programs vary in length and required time on campus, students can easily spend 20 to 30 hours a week on assignments and projects. That said, many EMBA students in demanding professions are still able to integrate their studies into their current lives.

Top EMBA programs also vary significantly regarding pre-MBA experience requirements. For instance, Personal MBA Coach has helped applicants with four to six years of experience get into the Wharton and Columbia Business School EMBA programs. On the other hand, all of our successful MIT Sloan applicants have met the program’s minimum requirement: ten-years of experience.

Admissions requirements for EMBA programs differ in terms of testing as well. Chicago Booth’s MBA program, ranked number one in U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Executive MBA Programs, requires applicants to take the EA, GMAT, or GRE. In contrast, Kellogg’s EMBA program, securing the second-place position in U.S. News & World Report’s rankings, does not require the GMAT or EA for most applicants (the GMAT is required only if applicants do not have a bachelor’s degree).
