Myths of an Executive MBA

MYTH:

An Executive MBA is only for executives.

TRUTH:

The MSU Executive MBA class profile features many mid-career professionals who seek to prepare themselves for the next step in their career. Each class cohort includes individuals who are already in the “C-Suite” and those who strive to get there; it is this great mix of talent experience that create a vibrant learning environment. See the average class profile

MYTH:

An Executive MBA is not true MBAs.

TRUTH:

This is certainly not the case with the MSU Executive MBA. Our program has the rigor of a full-time MBA, just in a compressed format. In fact, your diplomas are even the same. They say “Masters of Business Administration” from Michigan State University. See our comprehensive curriculum

MYTH:

An Executive MBA is an expensive option, often more expensive than “other” MBAs.

TRUTH:

Unlike other MBA programs, the Broad Executive MBA offers a no-hassle, no-surprises, all-inclusive tuition package that delivers high return-on-investment. Learn about our program cost

MYTH:

An Executive MBA requires multiple extensive residency programs – i.e. lots of extra time out of the office.

TRUTH:

The MSU Executive MBA requires two one-week residencies; one domestic and one international. Both are designed to create value while recognizing our students’ demanding schedule. Learn more about the international student experience

MYTH:

Executive MBA Students require special corporate sponsorship to enroll.

TRUTH:

While the MSU Executive MBA has many corporate partners, our program welcomes many individuals who partially or fully fund their education. In fact, approximately 75 percent of our students fund at least part of their investment. Learn more about the overall student experience
