Executive MBA or MBA – what is the difference?

Similarities and discrepancies of the two programmes

This is the third part of a mini-series in which we take a closer look at the role an EMBA or MBA plays in your career. While the MBA really is a full-time programme for about a year, the Executive version takes longer, but can be studied part-time. This has the advantage that you can keep working actively and combine practice with theory – ideal for experienced executives!

What the Marketing Materials Don’t Tell You About an Executive MBA

To be able to focus on your work is easy on such a beautiful campus with other like-minded people

Laerke Maire Norn writes about what is so special about studying for an EMBA at Henley. Besides the beautiful Henley Greenlands campus and one of the kind study trips, what she misses most is the deep focus in late nights of writing assignments and, most importantly, the comradeship with the fellow students. The latter is what really counts: Long-lasting friendships and what you learn from them for life!

Considerations for studying an MBA

What is the value of an MBA in today's world?

An MBA fulfills many aspects that are important building blocks in modern business. On the one hand, it provides a broad knowledge which is highly applicable in the real world. On the other hand, it gives you a practical toolkit of approaches to management and business challenges. Furthermore, it must not be forgotten, that, especially in the Executive MBA programme, a focus lies on personal development.

MBA vs specialised Masters programmes

What do you really need?

The decision which Masters programme you should take is not easy and should not be taken rashly. A general MBA gives you a much more holistic view to the management of business, whereas a specialised Masters programme will certainly give you the insights you need in the area of your interests. Also, you should always remember that you will never have finished learning and at some point, you will have to invest in further education.
