During a job search, or while updating your resume, you need to know the right way to promote your eMBA on your resume. The international designation society for degrees and designations currently only gives you the right to put an MBA at the top of a resume. They don’t yet recognize the eMBA as a separate degree. So you are categorized as having an MBA, not an eMBA even though there is a significant difference between the two. So how do you sell your eMBA on Your Resume?
Make Your MBA a Focus On Your Resume
Do put the MBA designation next to your name at the top of your resume to bring the degree to the forefront. Hiring influencers will want to know you have a graduate business degree.
Increase The Impact Of Your MBA
Then in your education section, on the second or third page of the resume, you can put the whole words for executive master of business administration in your education section with the full name of the business school(s). If it’s a global business school with multiple campuses around the world, list every campus you attended, globally, fully spelled out, not abbreviated. This increases the impact of your degree and emphasizes your international business experience.
Highlight Leadership Roles
Also, if you took a leadership role, such as class president, you should add this to your education section, too. Once hiring influencers realize you’ve earned an eMBA and took on a leadership role, your value also increases considerably.
Start Selling Your eMBA On Your Resume
This is the best way to sell your eMBA on your resume, attracting attention to your hard work and newly learned skills from both the scanning technology and human hiring influencers alike.
