From the Author Unfairly, the EMBA is treated as a mere footnote in business school reviews. The education is less theoretical and more practical and the learning experience is equal if not superior to a traditional MBA education. The classroom is full of CEOs, Managers, Vice Presidents, etc--great networking and great intellectual wealth. Unlike law and medical school where experience is not necessary, business school is best attended after years of practical experience. Management experience and tacit knowledge is necessary as it adds critical value in the classroom and the overall education.
