Even though you’re already working as a manager or as an executive, you may want to consider deepening your business education and try the universe of Masters in Business Administration.
Many companies also contribute financially to tuition, sponsoring their most promising managers and they even concede a special leave to employers in order to let them attend the standard “one to two years” masters. But usually, a more feasible solution for someone who’s already working full time is to engage themselves in masters conceived for them, not requiring a stop in the working routine.
EMBAs (Executive Master in Business Administration) are aimed for executives and managers who often have a ten-year working experience and allow students to earn their MBA while working full-time: classes are typically held every other weekend over two years. Another solution is to pick distance learning MBA programmes, and many famous Business Schools have developed them in the last 10 years.
Here, we are going to publish the name of the top 5 EMBA according to Bloomberg Businessweek. Their ranking criteria are customed-based, as student’s survey count up to the 65% of the total score.
1. Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University (US)
Kellogg School offers an Executive MBA Program in Miami and has alliances with business schools in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Canada.
2. Booth School of Business, University of Chicago (US)
Booth School runs simultaneously in Chicago, London and Singapore, with the students from the three cities meeting for workshops or week-long full immersion experiences five time per year.
3. Cox School of Business, Southern Methodist University (US)
A fame steadily growing outside US too, this institution jumped up from 7th to 3rd in the rank in just two year.
4. Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania (US)
The oldest collegiate business school still has her charm and is on of the world most published business faculty.
5. Anderson School of Management, University of California (US)
California’s attitude to pioneering is confirmed by its most renowned Business School, which pride itself with its research and teaching excellence.
Investing or not in further education is a gamble, a leap of faith requiring a number of sacrifices: it costs both financially and in terms of personal effort. Yet, students from the best EMBAs state that the experience pays them all. Plus EMBAs are an extraordinary opportunity to build a global network of valuable contacts among the best employed peers.
