An Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) is a postgraduate degree aimed at working professionals, managers and entrepreneurs. They are designed to challenge you to take your career to the next level, developing your knowledge of general management and business concepts, and allowing you to think beyond these. EMBA students are more likely to be more mature students, as they will be coming from several years of work experience. It is common for you to attend class on weekday evenings, so that you can fit your study around your current career.
An executive MBA programme will develop your existing knowledge, improving your theoretical understanding and ability to apply your practical skills. An EMBA will add to your knowledge and ability, allowing you to progress through your career. At the end of your degree, you will find that you are a better leader and manager, with increased knowledge around business growth and innovation. You will be able to consider business decisions from both an academic and professional perspective, giving you an advantage over other colleagues.
Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical sessions. You may be required to take part in a work placement module as part of your degree.
