Turning 33 and know I’m kind of late in the FT MBA game. Would PT-mba or an Emba be better fit if I’m not looking for career switch?

Do an M7 EMBA, EMBAs are easier to get in vs full time MBAs.

Yes. But expect to pay 210k+ (not factoring in interest).

The best choice will come down to what you’re looking to gain: letters after your name, resume line item, xyz school prestige, connections who are peers, a new network, or knowledge of an industry/sector for example.
Yes A1 is spot on with an M7 EMBA (wharton, cbs, Sloan).
The full-time one-year GSB MSx is also intended for people with 10+ years of experience and may be worth considering.
If you want a more traditional full-time MBA experience without losing two years, the CBS January entry or Kellogg 1Y program are great options.
After exhausting the above options, stern, Haas, Kellogg, or booth part-time programs may also be great options.

You’re not late to the full time game at all. I have classmates who are late 30s. Please do a full time MBA. You won’t get even a fraction of the same life changing experience at all doing a EMBA or part time

Less about your age, and more about your role and what company you’re at. If you are a “senior consultant” that seems about right for FT to still give ROI if you’re at a so-called lower tier firm and want to go towards a more prestigious consulting brand. Or you can get promoted to manager and shoot a shot to lateral into a post-mba role at a prestigious firm without the mba

Sloan fellows at MIT or Stanford's MSx program sounds like a fit

like

Take a look at 1 year programs: Kellogg, Cornell, Notre Dame. They’re a great fit if you’re not doing an internship. And skew a bit older because they typically require a few additional years of work experience

ND and Cornell are not the best programs, would skip those two.

This job market is insane right now.

Now, with all of these layoffs... employers have the upper hand, and it's super competitive to land the job.

I work full time as a senior manager (L7) at Amazon. I've passed one the hardest interview that Amazon has to be a part of the executive team.

I started coaching on the side and really fell in love with it. I've helped a ton of people land their dream job!

I shall be very thankful to you if you help me here.
