What is executive MBA
Executive MBA is basically MBA which is done by working professionals with good work experience. This programme is designed keeping in mind that the candidate has much industry knowledge with the experience and so basic knowledge may not be covered. So, the duration is also short (Mostly 1 year). Many times executive MBA is imparted in part-time mode with the job. The fees of Executive MBA is generally high as things are bundled in a small package(time frame). The reason for which many people do Executive MBA is that their companies finance their Executive MBA which is designed for working professionals mostly.
Often it is seen in normal MBA the advantage of work experience is quite less but when the whole batch would have experience then the companies would obviously offer higher packages. The type of MBA we are referring to has become common worldwide nowadays. The average salary varies from one business school to another business school.

The candidate must have a minimum work experience which varies from one business school to another but is of a minimum of 2 years mostly.
