The Executive MBA (EMBA) program is a graduate level business degree program and primarily designed for executives, managers, and similar business leaders. These programs are usually targeted towards working professionals, often in the middle stages of their career, and are often flexible to allow for part-time attendance while the student still works. An EMBA program allows a student to increase career options and update or add to their existing skill set. Over half of recruiters said that an individual’s leadership qualities are considered when they hire business school graduates .
