Requirements for an Executive MBA

A Master of Business Administration provides the individual with the skills and knowledge to climb up the ladder in an organization by combining courses with everyday professional experience. A person who wishes to obtain an MBA, but continue to work full time should consider an Executive MBA program. An EMBA is available in two years or less with more or less the same benefits as a traditional MBA, EMBA admission requirements but lean more towards professional experience.

Professional accomplishments

Type and length of professional experience is critical in the admissions process for an EMBA. Applicants are expected to have at least five years of professional experience, but often EMBA students have 10 or more years of significant professional experience. Business schools also take a closer look at the candidates ' results. They tend to favor individuals that will enrich the educational environment and stimulating learning experience.

GMAT

An EMBA generally puts more emphasis on work experience, but a good Graduate Management Admissions Test score can be very useful to get into an EMBA program. EMBA programs tend to be more flexible than the traditional MBA programs. For example, students at top business schools like Wharton and UCLA have average GMAT score of more than 700 for an MBA, but less than 700 for an EMBA. Some business schools do not require the GMAT but recommend it in cases where the applicant's professional or academic experience cannot prove his quantitative skills. A few business schools, such as Duke, NYU Stern, University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler and the University of Michigan, accept derogations for GMAT. These exemptions are normally accepted in cases where people can prove a great quantitative skills in their applications or have received prior postgraduate degrees.

Professional recommendations

Two letters of recommendation are required for all EMBA candidates. One must be from a professional direct supervisor or manager who can provide specific information regarding the applicant's leadership, analytical and managerial skills as well as professional results. The other may be from a previous employer, client or other person who has worked closely with the applicant.

Transcript

A bachelor's degree from an accredited four-year college or University is required, although it does not have to be a degree in business. Official transcripts of undergraduate degree must be submitted together with the application, with most schools looking for a quotient of 3.0 or better.
