  • Executive MBA program, Students may be Sponsored Financially
  • Designed specifically for working professionals with significant experience, the EMBA is much more than just one type of part-time MBA program. EMBA students may be sponsored both financially and through release time by their employing organisations, and continue to work full-time while enrolled on the programs. While courses vary, many EMBAs are built around a series of short modules and may not take much longer to complete than the full-time MBA.
  • Why do an MBA, Diverse Opportunities, Demand for Training
  • Why do an MBA? - Diverse Opportunities. Recent years have witnessed a rapid growth in the UK and international MBA market. The increasing demand for training in what is now routinely accepted as the graduate management degree is in part due to the MBA's growing reputation with senior executives in the business world.
  • Distance Learning MBA, Full Time Programmes at all Levels
  • Distance Learning MBA. There are various approaches to learning. Full time programmes at all levels require a career break of some sort. This may be acceptable especially for short courses or where you get leave of absence but you also have to consider access, location, timing, the quality of the group and of the deliverer. Local courses may be of restricted quality and you may not be able to afford overseas courses.
  • Online MBA programs, The Continuing Development of Internet Technology
  • Online MBA Programs. The online MBA is a relatively new development and as such there are very few business schools that are offering an MBA program entirely online. Many online programs still require students to attend mandatory residential courses as part of their syllabus. The length and frequency of these "contact" sessions vary depending on the school and program.
  • MBA Rankings, Are a Great Way for Perspective Students to Select

Taking the MBA rankings into account, perspective students will have a general idea of the status and value of their future degree in the business world. When selecting a school students should be aware of these rankings, even though they are debatable since they are seen by so many hiring companies.
