In terms of structure, EMBA programmes simultaneously resemble part-time and modular programmes. Classes are usually held on Fridays and Saturdays. Executive MBAs require long periods of residential work, known as "modules", and foreign field trips.
The content and scheduling are quite often different from the traditional full-time MBAs, as the EMBA is designed for the professional needs of senior, working managers. The level of coursework differs from full-time MBAs due to:
- A broad range of courses
- Courses which are more condensed
Team learning is an integral part of EMBA programmes. Students might work in teams so that a strong sense of camaraderie is established. EMBA programmes generally have a strong focus on team-based learning and participants learning from each other. Case studies are employed in such a way that they become a platform for discussion. Much care is taken when EMBA teams are put together. The aim is to create as diverse a culture and work experience as possible.
The EMBA is increasingly used to strengthen alliances among business schools. This gives you an excellent opportunity to have residential modules at various universities in different countries. Generally, these programmes are called Global Executive MBAs. For instance, ESCP-EAP European School of Management is a highly international school with campuses in Paris, London, Berlin, Madrid, and Turin.
