Part Time Vs EMBA [#permalink] New post 13 Jan 2011, 11:03
Guys
Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but can someone shed light on Part Time vs EMBA at Haas, Kellogg and Booth? I know that the EMBA is more $, but what do you get there that you don't with Part Time? The networking etc,?
Thanks

It's simply designed for people with different needs. HP manufactures laptops for business users and personal/home users. PT MBA and EMBA is similar to that aspect.

Some schools offer both PT MBA and EMBA without much difference (mainly because they are simply offering them to generate revenue) but in general:

PT MBA is like FT MBA except: a lot of PT MBA programs lack OCR, etc (yes, there are exceptions, like Booth) and PT MBA students take pretty much take all the courses that FT MBA students take, but less courses per semester. More resources are dedicated to FT MBA programs because those students must find jobs after bschool. PT MBA students are expected to have a job.

EMBA is designed for older, more senior executives. Some say it's easier to get in compared to PT MBA (lower GMAT requirements? Experience outweighs low UG GPA? etc - depends on school) programs. But EMBA students typically meet on weekends every X weeks. PT MBA programs either offer flexible week night classes or weekends, but EMBA is typically only offered on weekends and only hold classes every few weeks at a time. The more prestigious the reputation of the bschool, typically more established executives (but not always the case).

Thanks nink! What is OCR?

Also all schools say it is the same piece of paper at the end of any program PT FT EMBA etc. Granted FT is a totally separate beast with internship etc.., but between EMBA and PT if one had the option of both which one should one choose. In the sense that why is the EMBA cost so much more than PT - I guess there are meals, lodging etc included, but the classes/experience would be similar?

OCR is On Campus Recruiting.

The school can tell from their database whether you were a PT MBA or FT MBA graduate, but when you are looking for a job yrs later, it wouldn't really matter whether you did your MBA PT or FT.

I am pretty sure EMBA is distinctively different from regular PT or FT MBA degree (meaning it's not the same piece of paper. A FT or PT MBA student typically lists just MBA on the resume but EMBA students have to put EMBA on the resume)

Why does it cost more? I guess it depends on the program (if it does cost more) because like you said it covers for weekend expenses, but some programs have international experiences and other programs (i.e. - Tuck EMBA apparently travels to different Fortune 500 companies and hold seminars or classes on foreign locations)

Experience and classes? A lot of bschools put PT and FT MBA students in same class (especially for electives) but EMBA students only take courses with EMBA students because they operate on different calendar. So it should be a different experience.

Which one is better? Again, it's based on individual need. If you are relatively young (even in early 30's), PT MBA is probably better because courses will be more relevant to your needs and also your classmates will be around your age, etc. If you are older and you are in charge of running a segment of your business (and you are almost always in office), EMBA is probably better for similar reasons.

Also, in schools like Booth, PT MBA is flexible. You can take ANY electives you want. In EMBA, you cannot take any electives, it is a fixed general management curriculum. EMBA is much easier to get into if you have the years of experience. Booth weekend MBA's average GMAT score is 700, almost comparable to the 710 of full time program. EMBA fees typically include lodging and meal charges, PT fees don't. Wharton EMBA costs 173K and Columbia EMBA costs 149k - compare that to Booth's PT MBA for 100k (you pay for your own lodging/meals).

Just to clarify nink, I believe all PT FT EMBA programs give you the same piece of paper, that just says MBA...

So I guess unless your company us paying for the EMBA why would you do that vs PT? I am not clear..

I thought Wharton EMBA allowed electives?

I think you may be right. Although when i visit EMBA FAQ site for all the top schools, they don't answer whether your degree says EMBA or MBA but all the tier2 and tier 3 schools clarify that it will simply say MBA. I guess it's a strong selling pt on their part. :-D

Mainhoon, EMBA courses emphasize especially on leadership and management. If you are not in position to run a company at this pt of your career, you should consider PT MBA. Like I said, the course offerings are more relevant for non-executives.

Anyone here has any insights on the Berkeley-Columbia EMBA? How is that different from the regular Columbia EMBA? It seems Haas does not have an EMBA of its own...

Can some one add thoughts to Part time Haas/Kellogg/Booth vs McCombs EMBA? I am in Houston and I can see the travel component being a downside for these part time programs but would like to know what you think? Any one here flying for part time programs?

It depends. If you plan to continue to work in Texas the regional networking of UT would be better for you. Even if you go to a great school like Haas/Kellogg the network may not benefit you as much in Houston. Not to mention UT has an EMBA offered in Houston. Also, you may want to consider Cornell-Queen's EMBA which is offered in Houston. But it may also face the same limited network your top choices face.
