Difference between Regular MBA and Executive MBA course


Although Regular MBA and Executive MBA are management programs in Business Administration, which turn the attention of aspirants from varied academic backgrounds, the modes of study are entirely different in both these programs. Regular MBA is studying the program in a regular basis having daily day classes and particularly aimed at young candidates. Graduates from any stream with 50% aggregate marks can apply for the regular MBA program. However, graduates having 1 – 5 years work experience alone can do the Executive MBA program. Professionals who wish to pursue MBA being in job can opt for the same. Various Universities provide evening classes for executive MBA aspirants.

There are excellent career opportunities arising for these professionals day by day with the development of the economy.

As they have to concentrate only on the subjects, they can score quite better marks. Professionals, on completion of the course, can seek out for employments in multi-national companies or in any other private concerns within India or abroad.
