Self-funded executive MBA students want career services comparable to those offered full-time MBAs. EMBA programs seek a middle ground
Once upon a time, executive MBA students attended business school to enhance their skills and better perform for the companies that were paying their way. Today, fewer companies are sponsoring employees, which means more EMBA students are footing the bill themselves. As a result, according to top business schools, more are looking to make a career change, either during the program or after graduation. Business schools are hustling to make sense of this new demand and offer appropriate career help to these seasoned hires.
