Top Executive MBA Programs with an Average Matriculating Age of 37

As long as a professional has the required amount of leadership experience under their belt, an executive MBA can be pursued at almost any age. Among all of the top EMBA programs, several schools have repeatedly accepted students with a mean age of 37. Below, we examine and compare these programs: Anderson/UCLA, Stern/NYU, Kellogg/Northwestern, and Marshall/USC.

 

Anderson School of Management at UCLA
Centered in Los Angeles, an hub of corporate life, Anderson students will find an environment conducive to collaboration, innovation, and the ideal base to strengthen the basics of business, problem solving, and general management. Although Anderson EMBA students range from ages 29 to 53, the average age of the matriculating EMBA student is 37. The Anderson program focuses on teamwork, collaboration and skill building for future leaders. Students come from a variety of backgrounds including literature, psychology, math and science, business, and the humanities, although the majority of Anderson students have earned Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees in engineering (26%) or accounting, economics or finance (24%). Post-graduation, Anderson executive students report a raise in rank or pay grade as well as placement or continued work in a wide range of industries ranging from entertainment, government, high tech, energy, aerospace, and more.

Stern School of Business at NYU
The Stern EMBA program has been known to accept students aged anywhere from 28 to 69, with an average matriculating age of 37. The Stern EMBA student is bound to gain a broad international perspective given that approximately 48% of the Stern student body is comprised of international students. Throughout the 22-month program, all students undergo a management curriculum and take two four-week overseas assignments, also known as Global Study Tours, providing students with a greater scope of knowledge in their given industry. To customize their education, students can then take any of a wide range of electives. However, Stern strongly values well-rounded students, which is why only two courses are taken at a time – to ensure that students are able to maintain a work-life balance. In addition to being situated in the heart of New York, close to many company hubs and partnering firms, the Stern EMBA student gains access to an unbeatable network of over 100,000 professionals, including 500 CEOs in over 80 countries.

Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern
Students admitted to Kellogg’s EMBA program exhibit one shared quality: a knack for balancing professional lives, personal lives, leadership and extracurricular activities. The Kellogg EMBA is currently offered on two campuses: the Evanston Campus at Northwestern University, and the Miami Campus, open only to Kellogg EMBA candidates. In addition, Kellogg has global partnerships that offer joint EMBA programs with four international universities: The School of Business and Management at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology; The Recanati Graduate School of Management at Tel Aviv University in Israel; The WHU-Otto Beisheim School of Management in Germany; and the Schulich School of Business at York University in Toronto, Canada. Because of Kellogg’s unique international alliances coupled with a rigorous curriculum, high quality of faculty, and large percentage of students who receive a promotion upon graduation, Kellogg was named number one by The Economist for the best EMBA program of 2013.

Marshall School of Business at USC
At USC’s Marshall School of Business, diversity lies not only in students’ backgrounds and demographics, but more importantly, in the diversity of opinions and ideas. The Marshall EMBA provides students with two convenient California locations: at USC's historic University Park Campus in Los Angeles and in San Diego at the La Costa Executive Learning Center in Carlsbad, California. Being at the heart of California, it is no wonder that the two most prominent background industries of its students are in entertainment (21%) and high tech (18%). One of the key factors that often sway applicants’ decision toward Marshall is its dedication to customer service: at Marshall, the program staff is dedicated to helping students achieve their goals, which often times, for busy professionals, means allowing the curriculum to be as flexible as possible for each student’s unique situation. Marshall graduates walk away with an MBA from one of the top programs, a new family of peers and professionals, and a broad network of over 75,000 alumni.
