But first, let us clarify the common interpretations that people have when they hear about executive MBA. It may refer to part-time MBA meant for working professionals, as well as a full-time MBA program for professionals with minimum work experience ranging from 2-5 years. In this article, we are going to discuss the latter.

You might have noticed that the recruiters are increasingly showing a keen interest in hiring graduates from executive MBA programs. The reason being, the students from the executive MBA programs, already have robust work experience up their sleeves before they enter the program. They come intending to assume leadership roles in the industry, and that’s what the recruiters look for in the candidates – leaders.
