Will Stanford or Harvard ever offer an Executive MBA? [#permalink] New post 12 Mar 2012, 15:21
Does anybody here have a sense for whether Stanford or Harvard will ever offer an Executive MBA (EMBA)?

I understand that Stanford offers the Sloan program (1-year M.S. in Management) and that both schools offer executive education, but I am interested in obtaining an MBA while continuing to work full-time. I have read that Stanford does not plan to offer an Executive MBA until they feel that they can deliver the same quality of experience that the full-time MBA affords, but who knows if or when that date will arrive?

I have applied to Wharton's MBA Program for Executives and plan to enroll if I am admitted but I would be very interested in Stanford or Harvard if either offered an EMBA. (Especially Stanford-- my wife and I are graduates.)

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply!

Do you know if the Harvard PLD program confers a degree? I see that participants may obtain HBS alumni status but I am curious if they receive any kind of formal degree/certificate.

Thanks!

That I don't know, but I would recommend that you request a brochure and just lob a phone call into their admissions office. Considering the cost (41K) I would assume that you do get a degree. I'm sure they'd be happy to answer any questions you have, though. Even if they didn't offer an "MBA" degree, I would still love to have the Harvard name on my resume.

While you're looking into these programs, you should also take a look at Wharton West Executive MBA, run out of San Fran (http://www.wharton.upenn.edu/sanfrancis ... etails.cfm) and the Columbia-Berkely Executive MBA, split between Berkely and NY (http://berkeley.columbia.edu/). Both seem really cool from what I've heard, are filled with a lot of energetic individuals, and offer Executive MBA degrees from top schools.
