Comparing MBA and EMBA

MBA (Master of business administration is a Master's degree in corporate management. While the EMBA courses cover the individuals with a position of senior management and mid-level management, the Executive MBA is targeted at older, more experienced individuals wishing to improve their capacity to conceptualise their functional skills. Instead, the MBA courses concentrate on practical aspects of management.

Executive MBA: Pros and Cons


Now that we have seen what is an EMBA, let's look at the pros for pursuing it:

  1. Economical: Studying for a degree in India is much cheaper rather than pursuing one from the West. The tuition fee for an EMBA degree in Germany ranges from just INR 50,000 to 40 lakhs maximum. This is relatively inexpensive in comparison to the world's average executive MBA fees, which come to almost INR 50 lakhs.

  2. Short term and Beneficial: The EMBA is a one-year program in contrast with the conventional two-year MBA program. It ensures an easy return to the existing position of the organisation. It also helps in expanding the growth of an individual as this degree advances your skills and increases your value for a company as an asset.

  3. Better Salary Opportunities: The most important and beneficial feature of an executive MBA in India is that it offers you a great salary hike in your previous salary structure. Moreover, you can also earn higher financial benefits at work with this degree by your side.


Let's look at the other side of this managerial degree:

  1. Limited Specialisation: Unlike a regular MBA, EMBA does not provide you with a wide range of specialisations to choose from. So you may have to battle to find a curriculum that is appropriate for your academic, social, geographic, and timing interests. A compromise is therefore necessary.

  2. Stressful Timetables: If you are doing EMBA, you are a full-time employee and may not have time for the activities involved in the course. In this situation, it can become quite difficult to handle your responsibilities towards your organisation and family. Adapting to a new student lifestyle can also be stressful.

  3. Duration: EMBA programs offered by different institutions can be of one to three years duration and can be structured as regular full-time classes, evening classes, distance learning, and on-line learning. Some institutes conduct on-campus classes for a week, or maybe every six weeks. This enables the working executives to carry on with their regular jobs, and with a manageable leave plan for studies.
