Executive MBA in India

'Executive MBA' or 'EMBA' is typically a luxury, high-end modular program in India and several other countries. The executive MBA program is offered to senior managers with more than 15 years of experience who don\'t want to leave their well-paid full-time jobs to earn MBA credentials.

The layout of the curriculum is structured in such a way that senior executives devote 50-60 days attending classes on campus and completing the remaining of the regular executive MBA while at work.

Most of the world\'s top EMBA programs are delivered jointly by a few leading B-schools, typically across continents, in response to the need for business globalization.

EMBA is a flexible program and not a full-time education program

This is a noticeable difference, and that must be kept in mind. Kellogg-HKUST explains the audience and program mode \"The Kellogg-HKUST Executive MBA program is carefully designed for busy executives. It only takes about 40 days from the office. 

\"Kellogg-HKUST Executive MBA is a partnership program offered jointly by the Kellogg School of Management of Northwestern University and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

Fee Structure

The Kellogg-HKUST Executive MBA Fee amounts to USD 1.83,000, and USD 181,500 is the TRIUM Global Executive MBA Fee. In India, ISB \'s executive MBA fee is similarly high at Rs 38.48 lakhs.

Executive MBA in India

Moving to India, the misunderstanding between \'Executive MBA\' and \'One Year MBA\' and PGDM Executive programs is quite unwarranted. Since the term \'Executive\' is part of nearly all of IIM\'s 1-year MBA programs, media and the public have started to name such One Year MBA equivalent programs Executive MBAs.

Top Executive Programs in India

There are officially only a few B-schools in India that offer good executive MBA programs. ISB PGPMAX and Great Lakes PGXPM are rated as the best executive MBA. ISB PGPMAX, ISB\'s Executive MBA, is known as India\'s top EMBA program.

If you wonder why PGPX, IIM Ahmadabad PGPX, or IIM Bangalore EPGP or XLRI Jamshedpur PGDM (GM) excluded in this list, the explanation is that they are NOT equal to EMBA program. They suit well with the definition of the One Year MBA program.
