Can' you use Google?

An executive MBA is a part-time MBA aimed at people but substantial work experience.

Interesting, I am also looking for an EMBA in Egypt. I wonder if doing the EMBA at AUC would be a better investment than an online program like Bradford or Durham. Surely the online programs would provide a larger network?

If you want to work in Egypt, then the AUC EMBA would probably be a better investment.

My guess is that yes, the online programs would have broader networks, but these are of little use in terms of transitioning to other countries (given visa issues, etc.)

I guess it was a bit of a fantasy to assume I could go work in London if I did an online MBA from Bradford. Too bad.

Don't waste your money on Toulouse Business School as their MBA program is an absolute joke where entrance examinations are done by a person who doesn't even have a degree and you will end up in a class with people whose work paid for their course, have no university degrees at all, no English qualifications and you will end up doing all of their team assignments as they have no desire to study neither. If you want to throw away €35,000 go to Toulouse Business School.

I think these sorts of comments are pathetic. There's no obligation for admissions staff to have degrees at any school. The Toulouse MBA does require both a degree and an English qualification. There is nothing wrong with having companies pay for students.

If the charge is simply that higher-motivated students end up pulling the weight of those who are less well motivated, that is obviously also at issue at every school that uses groupwork -- and in the workplace.

Yes, this person just sounds like a disgruntled ex-student with a bone to pick.

There are these sorts at every MBA program, even Harvard. I can't take any of these criticism seriously, except for maybe the issues with groupwork, but like you say this is a challenge everywhere, and professionals with good leadership skills can effectively manage these issues, and don't need to complain about it on the internet.

How does the MSM program (delivered through RITI) compare to the EMBA from AUC?

I don't think they are on the same level. AUC is a university, one of the top universities on the continent and across the Middle East, with a research-active faculty, a top-tier business school and an impeccable alumni network. Neither MSM nor RITI can claim that.

That's what I thought. It sounds like it's worth the additional cost.
