Are you thinking about going back to school for your Executive MBA, but putting it off because you’re concerned that the time commitment will be too much, or concerned that if you’re not on the C-Suite path, there’s no reason to get the degree?
Think again! A recent article published by the SC Johnson School of Business at Cornell discusses 5 myths about their executive MBA program. It speaks accurately and interestingly to the concerns many eMBA candidates feel before taking the plunge back into graduate school.
Will you be able to keep up with the tough demands of graduate school, work, and family life? How can you leap back into college after years away? Are the classes full of moldy old executives or aggressive young college students? Will I fit in? Will the program fit me?
The article, written by a current executive MBA candidate is candid, thoughtful, and relevant to many of the eMBA students and graduates I have had the honour to meet during the course of my work around the globe with executive MBA graduates.
Do your homework, read up on the different programs and business schools out there, and find a good match for your goals. You’ll find that there is a great school with the perfect executive MBA program out there, and they are eager to help you connect with the resources you’ll need to succeed.
