How much of a value-add are Exec MBAs? I've not come across many of them. Been in IB for 9 years (no MBA) and wonder if it's something I do around the time I try to move up?

☝🏼what an idiotic baseless response (even if sarcastic) They are great programs for true Executives (think VP at Corporate) to (a) learn something they hadn’t in the past /forgot/ or is more aplicable to their current role (think mgmt or negotiations), (b) bring their more senior real life experiences to the classroom and (c) network with senior folks. Most companies will sponsor employees merely for the latter

Totally irrelevant. Who actually goes to b-school to learn academic things? The whole point is to hit the refresh button on your career, earn an impressive credential, and build a really strong network. An Executive MBA is worthless.

How is it possible to still be an associate after 9 years?

I disagree with ML. Think it depends on your goals. If looking for an intra-industry shift, it’s a great way to grow your network and gain experience that can open doors for you.

Current MBA, looking to go into product management. I’ve never had product experience and have to choose between a product management internship or a growth & analytics internship. I want to be a good job candidate with experience but... The PM internship’s company doesn’t have the most exciting product, but the founder said he would train me on PM responsibilities. The other company has a cool product, and is heavy on mentoring but i would not be directly involved in PM stuff. Which is better?
