Wondering how to emphasize your eMBA and what value it adds to employers? When you have earned an eMBA, you’ve learned job skills that translate directly into your next position! Here are a few you can point to during interviews, while networking, and in your elevator pitch:
Teamwork. The cohort learning experience gives you in-depth experience in teamwork. Completing project after project with the same 30-40 bright, driven, successful people over the course of your studies gives you experience not many other executives have.
Leadership. Part of that same cohort learning experience is leading your team through tough problem-solving to success. Your eMBA coursework is designed to take your leadership skills to an executive level.
Financial literacy. During your coursework, you’ve learned to read a balance sheet, evaluate a business plan, and see both the big picture and the smallest details. You won’t have a CPA or a degree in finance, but you will be confident in your ability to evaluate the numbers that concern an executive and help inform their decisions.
Confidence. By the time you have completed your eMBA, you know yourself, your strengths, and your skills. You trust yourself to dive in and get the job done, and to lead your team.
Experience. eMBA coursework isn’t just theoretical. You’ve been working on real issues that affect business today. You’ve done the work to solve real problems, create real success, and find workable, affordable solutions. For your eMBA, you didn’t just crack the books, you dug in and got real. There’s no substitute for that kind of experience, and you have it.
All of these skills can be used in any position, and any employer would be thrilled to find a candidate with this much to offer. So make sure you tell them all about it. Tell your network contacts, hiring influencers, and potential employers all about what your eMBA can do for them!
