Full-time MBA or EMBA? My company (EY) would pay for EMBA, but require me to stay with the firm for 3y post graduation; MBA would be on me and I have no more than 50k in my savings. The reason I am considering full time MBA is that I am not sure I want to stay in consulting, especially not in EY. Also, I am 30yo with 7y of experience and was recently promoted to a Manager. Any advice?

Freebie all day if it’s available! 3 years isn’t that long to be debt free and have an MBA!

You won’t get into a EMBA with those stats. You need more work experience.

EMBA is not an MBA and doesn't help you advance in your career. It's mostly for people that already made it to exec level without any Master's degree and want to pick up some extra knowledge and network with some similar people.

Sure sure

Do you know if you would be scholarship eligible? As previously mentioned, that definitely changes the math. Also, what are you trying to get out of the program? For example, and I’m generalizing, EMBA would be more case studies and open discussions on how to handle specific situations from the executive level whereas the MBA would have some of that but also have a lot more hands-on learning - creating financial models, writing papers, etc.

I don’t think I would be scholarship eligible…even if I am, the usual amount of 20k won’t change much :) my main goal is to rethink my career path and maybe discover a path I like more than consulting. I started working as a consultant in financial services straight after school and I don’t think I ever had time to think if I like it (probably not). If I do a part time EMBA, I don’t think I will get the chance to really think abt career change.

Often your new hiring company is willing to pay off the tuition fee if you leave earlier. Don't worry about it.
