How to choose the right Executive MBA?
Choosing the right Executive MBA can be challenging as many programmes offer similar promises. Understanding the answers to the following questions can help you choose the right programme for you.
Who is teaching?
The quality and expertise of the faculty can greatly impact the educational experience and the value of the degree obtained. The reputation of the professors and their real-world experience in the business world, are all factors to consider when selecting an MBA programme.
At ESEM Business School, we pride ourselves on the calibre of our professors. Our faculty members come from some of the best business schools in the world, ensuring that students receive the highest quality education from experts in their fields
Is the knowledge relevant and applicable?
The ability to apply concepts learned in the classroom to real-world situations is a critical aspect of a quality MBA programme. When selecting an MBA programme, it is important to assess the relevance and practicality of the curriculum to ensure that the education obtained can be applied effectively in the business world.
At ESEM Business School, we employ an action learning approach, which emphasizes practical, hands-on experience and allows students to apply their knowledge immediately. This approach involves working on real-life projects, often in collaboration with businesses, to develop practical solutions to complex problems.
Who is supporting your learning?
When choosing an MBA programme, it’s essential to look for programmes that offer mentoring support. A mentor can help students navigate the learning process and provide personalized guidance and support. This type of support can be invaluable for students, helping them to identify their strengths and weaknesses, set goals, and develop the skills they need to succeed.
At ESEM Business School, mentorship is deeply routed in the core of the programme, with mentors supporting you in each phase of the journey. Through one-on-one guidance, our mentors help you better understand the tools and concepts taught in the programme and apply them directly in your workplace.
How much emphasis is there on leadership skills?
It is widely recognized that to succeed in an executive role, one must master leadership skills. However, many Executive MBA programmes tend to focus more on functional or technical knowledge and offer limited number of modules focusing on for leadership development.
At ESEM Business School, we recognize the importance of leadership development and offer five modules solely focused on growing soft and transferrable skills that are essential for executive success. Our leadership modules provide students with the tools and knowledge necessary to lead effectively, build high-performance teams, communicate with impact, and make strategic decisions
