Is there a difference in terms of prestige or perception between an MBA or Executive MBA?

Executive MBA is not even a real degree

EMBA is barely seen as a real degree - as long as you can write a check, you can get into the program. They are normally used as networking opportunities only, no one will be particularly impressed seeing it on your resume.

That's actually a big achievement. Lots of people under 35 don't know how to write checks! ;)

I got a traditional MBA while working but if I did it again I think the EMBA is the way to go.

Why would you say that?

Seems like EMBA has a lot higher acceptance rates at top schools so id imagine less prestigious somehow but like it’s the same school so is the degree worth the same?

As I understand, EMBAs are totally different programs, with different number of hours in class, different kinds of classes, everything. That said, MBAs are becoming less necessary for a successful career - though the right one can still be quite valuable.

How are one-year programs (like Kellogg) viewed and used?
