Can someone post a link to a list of the best E-MBA schools? I believe Wharton has one, but beyond that, I'm not sure. Also, how are E-MBA degrees regarded against those that go fulltime? Do people really know? I guess it would show up on a transcript if the employer looked at it later on down the road. Ok, done thinking out loud now.

Here's a link to the latest BW rankings of EMBA programs (2007). It's probably due for an update this year but I don't know when that would be released:

In terms of how they're regarded, I don't think there's much if any difference. Down the line, your resume just will say MBA from School X. Maybe if you're trying to change careers it would make it harder since the EMBA programs are primarily designed for people staying within their company/industry and may not have the same level of recruitment support during the program.

Kellogg's is pretty sweet, the upper floors of their building are actually like a hotel where students stay. We often go to the building with our professors for lunches and I must say the food is great. For the most part only the top Kellogg professors teach courses at the EMBA program.

I know Booth, Columbia, Wharton, Ross, and Duke also have EMBAs. They all will have websites that will provide great information. Also remember that some of the schools have programs far away from the university. I know Kellogg has one in Evanston but another in Miami, and Wharton has one in Philly but another in San Fran.

I'm amazed that so few of the EMBA programs require the GMAT. Kellogg doesn't require GMAT, Wharton does. Those are the top 2. I looked at a few other

GMAT Required?
Kellogg - No
Wharton - Yes (Avg 703)
Booth - No
Ross - No
Columbia - Yes (Mid 80% Range: 10%-600; 90%-740)
Emory Goizueta - No
UCLA Anderson - Yes (Avg 658, 80% range: 600,730)
Duke Fuqua - Yes (Avg 650, 80% range: 560,730)
Kenan-Flagler - Yes (Avg 609, 80% Range: 500,700)

Those are the top 10. I'm really surprised that 40% of the top 10 do not require a GMAT. I wonder, how influential is a good GMAT score to the programs that don't "require" a GMAT. I'm sure they'll allow you to tell them your score.

I can only speak for Wharton, but the exec program grants the same MBA degree as full-time. If I make it through the next two years, I'll have zero shame telling anyone I pulled this off while working full-time.

How much do you think they weight the GMAT score? I notice you have a 750, which is a great score.

It's weighted 19.2%.

No it's not.

Well it could be. I really have no idea, but my best guess is it's an relevant qualifier to confirm that you'll be able to deal with the coursework. After that, I would suspect career experience and your essays are more differentiating factors.

They showed us a slide with our class' range of scores during orientation. There were people above 750, there were people below 700. I don't remember if the lowest histogram category was 650 or lower, but the mean was around 700.
