Executive MBA with full-time attendance [#permalink] New post 28 Jun 2013, 04:40
In a nutshell, I am looking for an executive MBA (EMBA) program that

- offers full-time attendance not just weekends or sessions contact hours, i.e. as many contact hours as a full-time program usually offers,
- offers a rigor or dedicated learning environment that is usually attributed to a full-time program in order to commit myself to my studies and classmates,
- offers more electives in comparison to other EMBA programs, namely up to 50% of total courses. Full-time MBA programs normally offer electives as percentage of the total courses 45-95%, while executive MBA programs 0-50%,
- sure, brand matters :) the EMBA rankings are a bit of a mess: various magazines approach them from substantially different perspectives, but anyway, among programs that fit my needs I will select the top-ranked school.

I have already made a short list.
1) Sloan master's program. The program is offered by London School of Business, Stanford, and MIT,
2) Wharton executive MBA program. The program's learning environment is said to be similar to its full-time MBA analog, however, the classes meet alternate weekends on Friday/Saturday with several extended sessions.
Anything else?

On the other hand I would consider full-time MBA programs that want more experienced students (about 10 years experience).

Could you please share your opinion?

After a while I have found that more experienced applicants usually consider taking European business schools, IMD or LBS in particular.

Nevertheless, any suggestions or comments will be appreciated.

Sure, part-time MBA is still another choice.

I'm reading 'How to get into the top MBA programs' by Richard Montauk. This book once more confirms that I've made a proper short list.
However, I still question whether I found all options.

This link, thanks essaysnark, http://essaysnark.com/2011/08/options-f ... candidate/
offers other options.

I think Sloan program fits me in the best way so far.

I'm still looking for another option.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
