I often say that the EDHEC EMBA helped me become a 2.0 version of myself: I have experienced a major upgrade, updated my skills and knowledge, and am able to think more innovatively. Today, the return on investment of my EMBA is clear, both to me and for my company.

What left the greatest impression on me was not only the teaching quality - particularly in strategy - but the practical dimension of this programme, which was based on numerous case studies and situational exercises. This constant link between theory and practice enabled us to fully appropriate the managerial skills we acquired, by linking what we were learning to our past or present working experience.

FAQ

An MBA and an EMBA both focus amongst other things, on leadership development, managerial and executive upskilling, business transformation, and developing new perspectives through cohort dynamics. How each course is organised and who applies to it, however, does differ. An MBA is an intense full-time, 10-month Executive Education degree that requires participants to take a career break. Applicants are required to have a minimum of 3 years of experience. An EMBA is a part-time 16-month Executive Education degree. Participants can continue to work throughout and are generally required to have at least 7 or 8 years of professional experience.

Executive Education courses are graduate-level business management programmes for managers, leaders, senior executives, and entrepreneurs who want to acquire new strategic and innovative leadership skills in order for them and their companies to thrive and become more competitive in an ever-changing global business landscape.

It is an Executive Education programme. Both Executive MBAs and Master’s degrees are advantageous  programmes for individuals who have completed undergraduate degrees  However, whereby a Master’s degree can be completed directly following an undergraduate degree of a similar subject and can focus on any number of career specialisations (from marketing to biological sciences, to hospitality or engineering), an EMBA is a more transformational Master’s programme focused on executive business administration and leadership. Participants are required to have around 8-10 years of professional experience, with participants in the EMBA at the EDHEC Business School having an average of 15 years of professional experience in managerial roles, and an average age of 38. Executive MBAs are part-time Executive Education degrees that allow participants to continue working throughout the programme.

This depends on your personal and professional circumstances. An MBA and an EMBA offer essentially the same programme. The areas where they may be more or less suited to your needs are primarily around duration, intensity, cost, and years of professional experience required to apply. At EDHEC, the MBA is an intense full-time, 10-month programme that requires participants to take a career break. Applicants are required to have a minimum of 3 years of experience. An EMBA is a part-time 16-month programme. Participants can continue to work throughout and are generally required to have at least 7 or 8 years of professional experience.

Employment prospects following the completion of an Executive MBA (EMBA), exist in almost any discipline where business acumen, advanced managerial skills, and executive leadership qualities are required. From sales to marketing, to human resources, accountancy, the tech industry, the hotel and tourism sectors, healthcare, pharma, automotive, to the entertainment industry, or roles in government agencies, the sky’s the limit. EMBA participants are experienced professionals who come together from a wide range of industries, creating a supportive cohort and alumni network that motivate, encourage and support its members long after graduation. While some participants use the EMBA degree as a stepping stone to higher leadership roles within their company, others strive to rethink their career paths completely, entering a different industry, with an executive leadership skill set required for leadership roles.

Executive Education courses are graduate-level business management degrees for managers, leaders, senior executives, and entrepreneurs who want to acquire new strategic and innovative leadership skills in order for them and their companies to thrive and become more competitive. Are executive degrees worth it? In short, yes. In an ever-changing global business landscape, with constant advances in technology, innovation, and changes in demographics, reactivity, and strong leadership qualities are essential. Executive Education programmes provide professional upskilling, the tools for becoming an agile leader, and vision transformation for optimal business evolution. To gain an understanding of the value of each Executive Education programme, one can also consider the return on investment, personal development and upskilling, the value gained from the course’s cohort and alumni network, and the professional transformation that the participant is seeking to gain from the Executive Education degree.

Executive Education certificates are accelerated programmes of short duration created for managers, directors, and senior executives. They combine in-class and online attendance during 5 non-consecutive days, for optimal organisational flexibility. EDHEC Business School provides multiple Executive Education certificates.

Executive management programmes are accelerated courses of short duration that accompany managers and future managers in the evolution of their specific skill sets and expertise. The programmes are tailored to the profile and the professional and personal aspirations of each participant. EDHEC Business School provides multiple Executive Education certificates.

Executive Education courses can lead to accredited graduate certificates in leadership and management or end with a degree like for example an MBA.
