How does an Executive MBA differ from a traditional MBA? The main difference between an EMBA and an MBA is their participants. An EMBA participant typically has more life and work experience than an MBA student, including significant management experience. For example, participants in the EMBA McGill-HEC Montreal program have a minimum of 10 years of work experience and 5 years of management experience, although the program average is closer to 10 years of management experience and 17 years of work experience.  This EMBA program has among the most experienced participants of any EMBA in North America. EMBA participants are experienced managers, so the program can presume a certain depth of business knowledge.

In the EMBA McGill-HEC Montreal, this means the class can address issues that couldn’t be addressed with a less experienced group. Since the participants are managers and leaders, management issues are addressed in the program just as they are encountered in real life. Another key difference is that Executive MBA participants continue their careers while they study.  For most, they are looking to enhance their competences and accelerate their careers, usually while remaining in their organization. In contrast, full-time MBA students are most often looking to reposition their careers and will interrupt their working-life for one or two years in order to do so. Finally, the schedule of an Executive MBA program is adapted to the reality of working managers. So how to choose between an EMBA and an MBA? The choice is a very personal one. It should be centred on your current reality, your experience and your aspirations. If you are looking to combine [...]

In French only Qu’est-ce que l’EMBA McGill HEC Montréal? L’EMBA McGill HEC Montréal est un programme de MBA pour cadres et gestionnaires passionnés qui détiennent un minimum de cinq ans d’expérience en gestion et de dix ans sur le marché du travail. Le programme s’étend sur 15 mois pendant lesquels les participants poursuivent leurs activités professionnelles. Les cours ont lieu une fois par mois, du jeudi au dimanche.

Les problèmes sont abordés tels qu’ils sont rencontrés dans [...]
