MBA or EMBA?


Hi everyone,

i am starting to look around for schoold to apply for an MBA or a EMBA. now the question is, are there any differences in prestige or consideration between them? is for example a Harvard EMBA graduate considered lower than a Harvard MBA student? i ask this because i would like to take different factor into consideration before doing my application and these factor include time and prestige of the program. so if for example an EMBA is considered less than a MBA then i would consider taking a career break to pursue it. if they are at the same level, then i could consider doing an EMBA without leaving my actual position.
I'll be very gratefull for all information i could get on this matter.
Thank You

I wouldn't say it's about prestige. Basically, an EMBA is for people with more business experience (as in work) than a standard MBA. It's usually 5 + years. How long have you held your current position? Usually, you have the option of taking a part-time Executive MBA while working. Are you interested in applying to Harvard?

An EMBA program is more than "an MBA without the kids," but an experienced cohort does make a difference.
