How many YOE do you have?

I can help as I made the same decision myself. In general, exec mba will have older and more experienced ppl. As a manager in any type of consulting, you’ll def have enough experience for an EMBA (I was also a manager and felt right at home). EMBA also allows you to work while being in school so the schedule is more flexible. I’m sure it depends on the school, but mine took care of all the admin stuff - signing up for classes, books, parking, which was nice. If you have specific qs you can message me or post on here.

Feel free to DM. I was full on going to go for an EMBA, but ended up doing the full time MBA at Columbia. Started at 31.

The best thing about the fulltime program is you can spend your time focused on deep diving in the material and not have a million other things you are trying to do at the same time.

I got my MBA while working full-time and going to classes at night. If I were to do it over again, would def do an Executive MBA. I think that’s the way to go, you’ll meet people who are already executives and can apply it directly to your job.

Thanks all! I’ll DM!
