What is an Executive MBA Program?
In US, Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong and China, ‘Executive MBA’ or ‘EMBA’ is generally a premium high-end modular MBA equivalent program offered to senior executives with 15+ years of experience who don’t wish to leave their well-paying full-time jobs for earning MBA credentials. The course program structure is designed in such a way that senior working executive spend 50-60 days on campus attending classes and complete the rest of the EMBA program while working.


Catering to the need of globalization of business, many of the World’s top EMBA programs are offered jointly by a few leading B-schools, usually across the continents. For instance, the Financial Times ‘Executive MBA Rankings 2018’ ranks Kellogg-HKUST EMBA, Trium: HEC Paris/LSE/NYU: Stern and Tsinghua University-INSEAD as top three EMBA programs in the world.


Key Features of Global Executive MBA (EMBA) Programs

  1. Aimed at Senior Executives with approximately 15 Years of working experience
  2. Modular program with periodic campus presence required.
  3. EMBA is NOT a Full-time Program
  4. Profile-based Admission, GMAT Scores generally NOT mandatory
  5. Placement support generally NOT offered
  6. EMBA Fee is generally 200% higher than regular MBA Fee

EMBA is a Modular Program, and Not a Full time MBA Program  
This is an important difference, and must be kept in mind. Clarifying the target audience and program mode, Kellogg-HKUST say, “The Kellogg-HKUST Executive MBA program is carefully designed for busy executives. It only requires around 40 days out of the office.” Kellogg-HKUST Executive MBA program is a partnership program offered jointly by Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong.


The TRIUM Global Executive MBA, ranked No 2 on FT EMBA Ranking, is jointly issued by New York University Stern School of Business, London School of Economics and Political Science, and HEC Paris School of Management. Regarding the program structure, TRIUM website says, “TRIUM uses an executive-friendly blended learning format (in-person classroom time and independent study between modules) comprising of 6 on-site modules at multiple global locations over an 18 month period. Time out of the office is only 10 weeks.”


In India, ISB makes a clear distinction between its PGP program which is positioned as One year MBA equivalent, and PGPMAX which is positioned as Executive MBA Equivalent program. “The Global EMBA equivalent programme offers campus experience. PGPMAX has a modular format and participants reside on ISB campus during classroom sessions…, ​” says ISB. The total number of working days away from work for the duration of PGPMAX are approximately 62 days. 

 Let’s look at highlights of global Executive MBA Programs to illustrate points made above.

Executive MBA (EMBA) in India
Coming to India, there is some unwarranted confusion between ‘Executive MBA’ and ‘One Year MBA’ and PGDM Executive programs. To understand the context, some historical perspective is useful.


In 2001, ISB Hyderabad launched its post-experience one-year full-time residential MBA equivalent program called Post Graduate Program (PGP). In 2006, IIM Ahmedabad launched its ‘Post Graduate Programme in Management for Executives’, its one-year, full-time, residential programs popularly known as PGPX. Soon IIM Calcutta too launched its ‘Post Graduate Programme for Executives’ or ‘PGPEX’. In 2009, IIM Bangalore launched ‘Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management’ or ‘EPGP’. Both IIMC’s PGPEX and IIMB’s EPGP were one-year, full-time, residential MBA Equivalent programs.


Given that word ‘Executive’ is part of virtually all 1-year MBA programs by IIMs, media and general public started calling these One Year MBA equivalent programs as Executive MBAs. Clearly, the one-year residential MBA programs by IIMs are NOT part-time/modular Executive MBA programs, as EMBAs are known globally. Read more about One Year MBA offered by IIMs


This confusion was further compounded when AICTE, the management education regulator in India, permitted PGDM B-schools to offer ‘Executive PGDM’ – also a full-time residential 15-months MBA equivalent program. So XLRI offered PGDM (General Management) and MDI offered National management Programme (NMP). Today more than 25 B-schools including SPJIMR Mumbai, IMT Ghaziabad, IMI New Delhi, Great Lakes Chennai, K J Somaiya Mumbai, BIMTECH Greater Noida, SDMIMD Mysore are offering PGDM Executive programs in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and other cities. Read more about One Year MBA offered by XLRI, SPJIMR and Top PGDM B-schools.


To summarize the difference between EMBA and One Year MBA in India, refer to this table below.


Executive MBA Vs 1 Year MBA: Not the same

One Year MBA for Executives
Executive MBA/EMBA
Full Time
12-15 months
Varies from 15 months to longer
Minimum Work Ex Required
5 Years for IIMs, 2 Years for ISB/Great Lakes

Profile based. GMAT generally not required

As shown in the table above, the difference between Executive MBA and 1-year MBA is clear. While One-year MBA by IIMs, ISB, XLRI is a fully residential program, Executive MBA like ISB PGPMAX is a modular program aimed at senior executives.

Top Executive Programs in India 2021
Currently there are only few B-schools offering good Executive MBA programmes in India.


ISB PGPMAX and Great Lakes PGXPM are considered as the top Executive MBA Colleges in India. ISB PGPMAX, the Executive MBA by ISB, is considered as the top EMBA programme in India. ISB PGPMAX is 15 Months Modular Programme with world class curriculum which offers International Immersion. Post Graduate eXecutive Program in Management (PGPXM) at Great Lakes is one of the high ranked Executive MBA in India. The duration of EMBA programme is 20 months. The PGPXM helps experienced executives to develop general management competencies and prepares them for fast track growth to leadership roles.


If you are wondering why PGPX, IIM Ahmedabad PGPX or IIM Bangalore EPGP or XLRI Jamshedpur PGDM (GM) are not included in this list, the reason is that they are NOT equivalent of EMBA programs. They fit the description of One Year MBA Programs perfectly.

Top Global Executive MBA Programs
Financial Times publishes its much respected annual EMBA Rankings. The 18th edition of the FT global executive MBA ranking of the best 100 programmes worldwide was published in May 2018. FT Rankings show that the gap in average salaries between EMBA and MBA alumni ($220,000 vs $146,000) is similar to that between MBA and MiM graduates ($146,000 vs $67,000), three years after graduation. One of the interesting trends from this ranking is that Asia offers quite a good number of EMBA programs with Singapore, Hong Kong and China as leaders of EMBA program in Asia. Many leading US and European B-schools offer joint programs with top Asian B-schools. Sadly, no Indian B-schools or EMBA program features on this list.

Executive MBA in India
ISB and Great Lakes are the top Executive MBA colleges in India offering Executive MBA in India. Although there are many top executive MBA colleges across the globe, but the executive MBA in India is not offered by many institutes. A key point to note in regard to the top Executive MBA colleges in India is that there is no executive MBA from IIMs. Therefore, despite being the institutes of high national importance, executive MBA from IIMs has not been launched. On the contrary, a full time one year programme like IIMA PGPX, IIMB EPGP is confused as the Executive MBA from IIMs which in fact is not a true Executive MBA programme.


Among the top ranked Executive MBA in India are the programmes offered by the following institutes:


PGPMAX – Executive MBA by ISB

PGXPM – Executive MBA by Great Lakes
Post Graduate eXecutive Program in Management (PGPXM) at Great Lakes is one of the high ranked Executive MBA programmes in India. The duration of EMBA programme is 20 months which is longer than 1 year executive MBA, so the executive MBA should not be confused by the full time 1 year MBA Program PGPM, offered by Great Lakes.

Where the scholastic performance of the candidate has not been high, this would be a necessary input, as to be decided solely by Great Lakes. Such applicants, who do not have a valid aptitude test score, would need to take the Great Lakes Aptitude test GREAT as a pre-requisite, and would need to get a score acceptable to Great Lakes at their sole discretion, to be eligible for the admission process further.

The Executive MBA fee structure at Great Lakes Institute of Management is much lower at Rs. 8.50 lakhs, if you pay the complete Executive MBA fee in single instalment. If you choose to pay the executive MBA fee in multiple instalments, this executive MBA fee structure would be Rs.8.80 lakhs or Rs.9 lakhs depending upon the choice of instalments.
